-Does POV-Ray support animation rendering?

-Does POV-Ray support keyframe, timeline (interpolation) animation rendering
from Blender 3D models?

-Does POV-Ray include equivalent support for Marked Freestyle Line Edges in
Blender 3D?

-If POV-Ray does support those previous from Blender3D, does it support command
line, background animation rendering?

-Given that I can use plugin support to export my animation to different formats
from Blender 3D, what would be the ideal file format for my keyframe, 3D
animation model?

-Can I be given an example of "command line animation rendering via file"
command prompt entry?

Yes.

No PovRay is a renderer and the windows version comes with a text 
editor. That is it. You have to do the hard work yourself. Or use the 
PovRay exporter that comes with Blender.

No, PovRay uses mathematical primitives. It can handle meshes and 
heightfields But not like Blender.

I can say yes to that. :)

To use PovRay. You need to export and render each frame separately. You 
can use Blender to do this.

I don't do that thing, myself. So I can't help there.
There should be examples in the Help and Tutorial files.

A set of demo animations is shipped with POV-Ray and can be found in the 
directory <install_location>/scenes/animations. You can find the current 
master development versions on line at:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/tree/master/distribution/scenes/animations

If you were in a local directory with copies of the splinefollow 
directory files you could render the animation frames with the commands:

povray splinefollow.pov +kf0.1666 +kff20 +kc declare=fp=0

or

povray splinefollow.ini
