I've never had a problem using all purpose.

 If I'm remembering right, cake flour is much finer, with a lower gluten content. I think you can substitute, but with different measurements. I'll google it and come back :)

No, but you can make your own cake flour. Let me find you a recipe

It's for a cake. I've never made one from scratch and I want to try. One of the all purpose flours has a slice of cake on the bag, lol

It will work but the cake will be denser than it is meant to be. Does the recipe call for baking soda or bakind powder along with  the cake flour?

Yes, but I think you need a different amount than what the recipe calls for. I use all purpose all the time. Google what the substitute for it is.
