In an ideal world yes.  As @jjd-uk points out, more fields are available in V19 than 18.  Specifically, BPM, sample rate, bit rate, No. of channels, Original year, disc title, No. of Discs and is/is not a box set.

See jjd's post above ^^

No, not currently.  It might be possible in the future though to add custom tags to music items in the same way as video and use those for filtering.  Who knows ?

You can do this with a folder type node, which is different to a filter type (those are the ones using the smartplaylist style rules) as it uses an internal path.

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<node type="folder" visible="Library.HasContent(Music)">
    <label>Album Artists</label>
    <content>artists</content>
    <order direction="ascending">artist</order>
    <path>musicdb://artists/?albumartistonly=true</path>
</node>

I think that should do what you want.  Note that there is no documentation for these folder type nodes, nor is there likely to be but there are several examples scattered around in the forum.  There are various examples in https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=257378
