By what command is it possible to create (without writing a code
separately ):

1) Reflections of 3D objects about a plane?

2) Multiple copies equally spaced  by rotation around an axis through
two given points?

surf = ParametricPlot3D[{ t,u+t, u*t/5}, {t,0,2},{u,-1,1}];
Rotate[surf,Axis->{ {-1,-1,-1},{1,1,1}} , Copies-> 4 ] ;     and,

3) A single rotation of given object through a given angle on an axis
through two defined points?

Thanks in advance
