Can AME be used for requisition while Position Hierarchies used for POs? 

Yes, AME with Procurement is only used with Requisitions, and it is possible to use Position Hierarchies for PO's while using AME for Requisitions (although Position Hierarchies are not used by AME during Requisition Approval)

 Can Purchase Requisitions created in Core Purchasing Applications use the AME approval functionality?

Yes. AME works for both iProcurement and Core Purchasing Requisitions

Can Internal Requisitions use the new Procurement AME approval functionality ?

Yes

 Does AME support parallel approval ? 

In 11.5.10 only serial approval is supported.  Parallel approval is supported in R12.

This is done in the Setup Document Type Form in Core Purchasing. The following Approval Transaction Types are seeded and supported:

PURCHASE_REQ = Purchase Requisition
INTERNAL_REQ = Internal Requisition
RCO = Requestor change order
