I've got a Philips PCS130.
- Both. See attached diagram from the manual.
- Both the head and the lens stage rotate freely, although they both "click" into place in the conventional non-tilted position. Knobs tighten them into position at any angle so the rig doesn't get accidentally knocked out of alignment.
I've never actually used this feature of my enlarger, so I don't know how well it works in practice.
Yes, yes, and scale.
An Opemus 6, and a Durst L138S.
2. Lens plane - 2 directions
3. Scales - and a pin to lock it at zero
I used to have a PCS 130, and I thought the neg stage tilt worked pretty well, but the head tilt was a bit awkward.

I use a Meopta magnifax 4a color 3 head: http://www.meopta.com/index.php?id=308 which does have various correcting functions, 90% head tilt etc. However, my DeVere 5108 does not a head tilt function, which if present would probably increase the size of the enlarger somewhat.
My Durst AC707 has tilting head and lens panel (with scale).
Yes, yes, scale on Durst. I think a full-rotary neg carrier with masking blades was available as an accessory, but I don't have it, just a regular one.
No on Zone VI

You correct the perspective by changing the angle of each plane; 1-the negative plane, by tilting the enlarger head; 2-the baseboard plane (if not available on your enlarger, use a piece of wood); 3- the plane of the lens, which would spread sharpness over the whole image.
All planes must meet at the same point. Hard to describe in words, but if you follow the rules of the schimpflung effect as described for large format cameras, these rules are the same for enlargers.
Look up the manual for Durst Laborator 138, it has these adjustments
On my Kienzle Tempomat 912.
3. Free rotation with click for the center position. No scale
