I'm not sure I understood - the only meaning of the team is that members of the same team don't get paired against each other?

First 6 teams will get some kind of an award. I think players from the same team can play against each other. It doesn't effect the tournament itself.

Everyone from Europe played all rounds. I have put link to complete results here (in Chinese).
The tournament will happen next year and many years in the future. Always somewhere on the Silk Road, so possibly in Europe.
