Default Schottky Diodes

Hey guys, help me with these.....

What is a Schottky Diode?
What are the importance of installing a Schottky Diode?
Do I have to install a schottky diode in a 540 motor?
How about installing two or more diodes?

All of the info I have found so far on Shottky diodes advises that they should not be used on reversible ESC's. What about a reversible ESC that has reverse disabled? Should a Shottky diode be used in this case?

Should cause no harm. Just remember not to use reverse or the diode will pop.
