In keystone you would need to create endpoints for all used services in that region.
region   | endpoint
region1 | nova.region1.mycloud.com 
region2 | nova.region2.mycloud.com

When you want to use a service you go to keystone for a token and for the endpoint URL of a service.
You will need to specify the region for the endpoint
Any calls for the service will go directly to the correct endpoint, eg. nova.region2.mycloud.com

I do not *think* they do. (just did a nova with --debug) 
But not 100% sure

The keystone URL will be the same but you will create endpoints in keystone for each region.

The client will need to set their region in the request.

For the commandline tools you could do something like:

export OS_REGION_NAME=region1
