Dear Daniel,

Yes.

Yes.

You will need to rotate the subelement in which the holes are not aligned - either rotating using the axis perpendicular to the plane we are looking at, or an axis in the plane, in order to get the remaining elements.  

But you could also create a different sub-element for the other orientations if you prefer.

Personally I would use the larger 'cell' volume (the subelement with 3 holes), in order to use a smaller number of placements at the top level, and make the rotations required very simple.

Yes, you create a separate G4VPVPlacement for each hole, using a logical volume with the cylindrical solid.

I am not an expert in sensitive volumes.  

Once simple way would be to create a sensitive volume for each gas hole, and another for each layer.  You can certainly share a sensitive volume between different logical volumes, but I would try to create separate ones for gas and the 'layer' material. 

Please look again at the examples of Sensitive volumes, and ask again if you need clarifications.
