1) You can connect to a existing breaker feeding another load if lug terminals will accommodate multiple conductors.  
2) You can connect to a dedicated 20A 2 pole breaker.
3)  You can direct bus connect because it is a Type 1 device. Type 1 SPD can be connected with or without an overcurrent protection device.
