Yes. The lobby leader picks a \"pact\" (a map/mission) for the group, and there are no level requirements for the pacts as far as I’ve seen. In addition, you don’t have to start a pact with a full party either.

Yes. All Divine/Dark levels and rewarded offerings carry over into your single-player game. In addition, all completion progress of pacts carries over into your single-player game as well.
How does saving/sacrificing enemies work in co-op for Soul Sacrifice?
Only one player can sacrifice or save any of the smaller enemies for a health or magic boost as well as essence gain. All living players can choose to save or sacrifice a boss for their own type of essence gain. The end result of the save or sacrifice of a boss will reward you with the corresponding essence, no matter which you personally decided. For this reason, if your Dark/Divine levels are important to you, you might want to roll with like-minded players, or players will are willing to communicate about save/sacrifice decisions.
How does saving/sacrificing players work in co-op?
When a player gets incapacitated, he or she will be able ask their party to save or sacrifice him/her. This is only a request, however. Living party members can choose either one. Saving allies causing the savior to lose a large chunk of health as a cost for saving them. Sacrificing them kills the downed players, destroying their bodies for the rest of the pact and unleashing a powerful spell. The dead player can still influence the current battle (provided the massive spell didn’t finish off the boss) by buffing allies or debuffing enemies through touch commands on the touch screen. When a pact is completed, any sacrificed players (as well as the people who sacrificed them) will receive special “martyr” rewards as bonuses for their sacrifice. They will not be able to partake in any additional essence rewards.
What happens when players disagree about saving or sacrificing a boss in Soul Sacrifice?
The host gets the final say. In a co-op game that I hosted, I tested this with one other person in my game. He chose to sacrifice the boss, while I chose to save it. I made sure that he started to attempt to sacrifice before I attempted to save, and the boss ended up being saved.
