Master data for "/ERP/..." characteristics

I'm working on S/4HANA BW 7.5.1 SP 2. I'm just working for the first time with "/ERP/..." characteristics, such as /ERP/COSTCNTR, /ERP/GL_ACCT, etc. (I used to work with 0GL_ACCOUNT, 0COSTCENTER, etc,) so I have some questions:

1. Virtual characteristics are related to a HANA view predefined included in a package "sap.erp...". What's the best practices to use them? is it ok if a keep them pointed to the sap original package? or should I copy those views to my own package before use them? if so, should I do a mass copy so they keep their original name or should I rename them?

2. What if I need my /ERP/ characteristic to be persistent? Should I create a traditional dataflow to load master data from S/4 into the master data tables (it means, data source, transformation, etc)? Is it possible to use the standard datasources in RSA5 for it?

3. How can I load S/4 hierarchies for /ERP/GL_ACCOUNT, for example, now?

Ive been reading some documentation but it is not clear for me yet. Can you help me, please? If you have some detailed documentation to share I'll appreciate it.

Thank you.
