Does changing the concentration of a substance in a reaction affect the free energy?

Yes, since delta G = delta G standard + RTlnQ, and Q is concentration of products over reactants, Gibbs free energy does depend on concentration.

Yes! it's products and reactants concentrations that affect the free energy.
