I used CPAN::Mini a lot but now start using *real* CPAN mirrors for
the distroprefs mechanism that CPAN.pm provides (needed to work around
any known problem on CPAN).
You can, of course, use distroprefs with any CPAN-like mirror,
including a mini-CPAN.
Technically yes. But the existing distroprefs yaml files maintained by
ANDK in CPAN (and reused by me) are not synced in CPAN::Mini.

I once synced it manually with rsync on top of a CPAN::Mini mirror but
I got tired by that eventually.


Kind regards,
Steffen
