Are you saying you want to use PVC for a mast through the roof? And support the drop off of it?
I think not.

You POCO will have the details of what they require for this application. Some want 2" rigid. Some 2".
Yes, even for a 100 amp service.

Above the roof is typically 3'. Can be higher but again, the POCO will have the details.
YES, call them to see if your meter placement is OK with them.

I seriuosly doubt it.
If the point is on the building why would you need the height of a mast?
The main reason for a mast is to get height for the point of attachment.

Wow. You are jumping around now. You went from wanting to use PVC as a mast to this.

Yes, you can and should use RMC as your mast. YOUR POCO WILL TELL YOU what size to use as I stated previously.

There is no set number as to how far in you can go with unfused service conductors. Code says as close as practical.
A rule of thumb in most areas is 5'-6'.
