Easier than that, if you just don't touch it with your hands you will make it last far longer than if you unwrap the whole thing and touch it.

My guess is it would affect the taste of the cheese. Depending on the type of cheese, a little vinegar might be okay, but in others, it wouldn't. A better way would be to dampen a cloth in salt water and use the cloth to brush off any mold on the cheese. That's what cheese-makers do.

I have no idea. Mold that grows on hard cheese can simply be cut off and the cheese is still safe to eat. It's mold on soft cheese that you have to toss the whole thing out.
