Please please please please read the FAQs above. The answers (to tire rotation) are in there.
And if just the outer edge of the tires are wearing, you may be having an alignment problem.

...same sides (i.e. left rear with left front). It's in the manual as well.

You can have the tires remounted to swap left to right (so your old outside is now the inside...)

Depending on the amount of tread left and the costs of de and remounting, it may not be worth it.

Before you do anything, you should get the alignment checked, particularly the toe in/out.

Maybe. It depends on the tire.
