1. There is also the possibility to simulate refraction, see this wiki
But this will not simulate interference fringes as the phase-contrast
actor. This is the only possibility as far as I know.
2. No, some actors can use non-voxelized geometry. But this actor is only
working on a voxelized image.
3. Not that I'm aware of but that would be a useful tool! With RTK, you can
draw some simple shapes, see e.g. this page
