Sure. The more paintballs flying, the better.

Unlimited. Machine gun magazines aren't currently restricted by the
rules. Furthermore, it seems reasonable to me that a machine gun should
be allowed to fire in fully automatic mode as well, in order to provide
that wonderful machine gun effect that we all want to see.

Nope. A machine gun can only be used to destroy infantry (e.g. Fred
Simms), un-armored vehicles (e.g., Fred Simms' Quadricycle) and
artillery. In fact, the precedent for this was stated when Fred Simms
appeared on the scene with his machine gun. He's allowed to battle
alongside tanks, but he can only destroy "soft" targets.
Although it's not specifically stated in the rules, you should probably
be required to hit a soft target more than N times with a machine gun to
destroy it. (Fred Simms himself may require 2N hits because he is in
excellent physical shape :-)
