Metering with adapted lenses

I am a Nikon Z7 shooter and will soon be getting a used Sony A7 (original) that I could not pass up at the price I was offered. I would like to adapt old manual focus lenses primarily to the A7, but possibly also the Z7 in the future.

My questions are as follows:

1) Do adapted manual focussing lenses allow for metering through the camera, or is an external light meter needed?

2) Does this depend on the specific lens, adapter and camera combination?

3) If I purchase an E-mount manual focus lens such as a Meike or 7artisans, will these allow for entering through the camera?

Many thanks for your time and responses.
