Yes, all molecules have London dispersion forces because there are always instantaneous dipole moments happening as electrons are moving around the molecule.

Yes, all molecules have LDF because think of the electrons as constantly moving, so there are dipoles that are induced attracted to other induced dipoles. That's why LDF can also be referred to as induced dipole induced dipole.

Yes, because all molecules have electrons, and LDFs occur when electron clouds are more dense in one direction.
