10. Can I have up to 3 different guards using QR-Patrol on 3 different smartphones?

You can use 3 different phones for up to 3 different guards, but if you use 1 device for different guards, all events from the device must be uploaded to the cloud server before you change guard ID. Otherwise, all stored data from the device will be deleted.

11. Can I prevent my guards from copying checkpoints and "cheating" the system?

"Cheating" is not an easy thing to do; every time that your employees send an event, the position (acquired by GPS, WiFi and GSM cell antennas) and respective time-stamp is also included, so you will be able to spot where they are.
Additionally, instead of QR-Code labels, you could also use NFC tags or Beacons as checkpoints, so that your employees won't be able to copy them.
