These definitions will be further defined in the revised A13 which should be released in the next month or so. My following comments are based on the draft version, and thus are subject to change.
a) Yes. It appears so. And the duplicate country codes are an error. From A13:
For costs related to the provision of IT services by third parties, such as reservations, cargo, ticketing and departure control systems. Does not include the use of departure controls systems provided by handling agents (see Passenger Handling).
b & c) Reading the above description and the description for assessment (below), I believe that b & c should be included in "IT Services / Application Charges". I'll double check on this and revert shortly, but only if I'm incorrect.
Volume or throughput charges for Clearing House and other services
As to your other questions:
i) Charge Code Type is a field in the IS-XML (see, e.g., ChargeCodeType on row 486 of the Misc Mandatory-Recommended fields worsheet for info on how it relates specifically to the assessment charge code, or the IS-XML Standard worksheet for general details.
ii) You are correct. Similalarly, see the descriptions of these fields on the IS-XML standard worksheet.
