Non current assets held for sale are not within the scope of IAS 36. They are covered by IFRS 5. Therefore you need not test for impairment.

yes, though VIU calculation is not required because there wouldn't be one. Just compare carrying amount to net selling price (FRS 105)

No because as per IFRS 5 they should be measured at fair value.

This should be measured in accordance with IFRS 5. Once measured and classified as Non-current Asset Held for Sale. All depreciation must stop and it shall be measured at Current/Fair  Selling Price in the available market.
