You will probably need to specify country, regulating authority and operator if you want an answer that means anything to you.

Having been a field instructor (for maintenance) on the B747, I can tell you I went through a class offered by my employer, and followed the guidelines of our GMM & GOM, along with the specific sections of the AMM.

The only FAA regulation I know of would be the one that governs our various manuals...loosely, write what you do, do what you write.

Unless it's expressly prohibited, it's allowed.

No license where I am. In order to checkout someone you have to be a designee. It can either be a training instructor or a qualified AMT, depending on weather it's an initial or a requal. This can and does change.
