1) Use mapped variable

map $http_<header you want to change> $<some variable name> {
  ""           "value if nit set";
  default $http_<header you want to change>;
Then you can set header with the new variable.

2) I guess you can use map, too. Use $upstream_http_*name* instead.

3) Sorry, I have no idea on this.
