No. The alignment system is largely a hold-over from early D&D that was evolved into it's own new beast, separate from it's original inspirations. Oddly, the D&D alignment system is well-known even … will also 5e if I ever play it again and use the actual alignment system), I always tell my players (or ask my GM) what ethical system we will be using for the campaign.

(Contingent) Atonement is the nice way to do this as a player. Technically though, you're free to change alignment whenever you feel like it as not an action. That means you can be LG, decide … RAW.

good alignment. As long as you are of good alignment, you lose the 'benefits' of the Hollow feat, which may well include not having a soul, and certainly includes not being able to be raised from … the dead.

You made a homebrew system that gives an Adult White Dragon as a potential follower/ally, so yes, in your game, an Adult White Dragon can absolutely be a follower/ally. The dragons alignment isn't … for anyone but themselves and often not themselves either. You don't have to represent the dragon's alignment that way.

is a bad idea. But you can play in a manner where telling your players that they are breaking alignment is fine, even to the point of prohibiting some actions on the basis of their violating alignment … people and all that.

1) If the Cleric is a PC his alignment is his choice and can change suddenly at any time. As long as his God is okay with it, he can suddenly turn evil, cast the spell, then turn good again … you keep your alignment up.
