if the channel behaviour is different for selected frequencies i.e it enhances certain frequency and attenuates other, it is referred to as a freq.selective channel.
in a lay man language the dips in the channel response at some frequencies will cause it to be frequency selective.

I think so.

There is a capacitance in electric cables such that they distort signals at high frequencies. So yeah I think they are frequency selective.
