  You don't need to include anything in the response.  The documentation describes how the module works and what it does.

  FreeRADIUS treats the REST API as just another database.  There's no "requirement" to put anything into SQL, so there's no requirement to put anything in REST.

  Yes.  You just list "rest" in the authenticate section, and "sql" elsewhere.
