MF lenses and Non-CPU lens settings

1.) So if I have a lens that's an odd FL, say 7.5mm but the Z camera only lists common FLs like 6, 8, etc, do I just pick the closest FL to what I have (so in this case, 8mm)?

2.) What about if the lens is an APS-C lens being used on a FF body (in crop mode)... do I use them equivalent 35mm FL at that point (so for the above-mentioned 7.5mm, do I select something like 20-21mm)?

3.) When an AF lens is attached (say like a 24-70) does the camera ignore the non-CPU lens setting or I do I need to clear it (or move it to a slot that doesn't have any settings) when I attach an AF lens that that camera can communicate with?
