Inheritance Agreement or Will

Hallo everybody,

I am interested in drafting an inheritance agreement/will but I am not sure the difference between inheritance agreement and will.

1) do inheritance agreement and will need the signature of all the parties to be valid?
2) if inheritance agreement is signed by all the parties, can it be overturned by a will signed at a later stage
3) Is 50% the minimum mandatory inheritance of spouse without children and 25% for spouse with children by Swiss Law? Can this minimum mandatory be overrule by an agreement signed by spouse?
4) does a will need to be witnessed by a notary or can it be simply hand-written and signed?
5) Does inheritance agreement need to be drafted by a lawyer and signed by all parties involved?

I look forward to your reply.
Thank you very much and stay healthy!
