1) How do you define a feature? For a city, farm and road I'm asumming it's any tile that the feature is comprised of. What about a cloister? Are the 8 surrounding tiles considered part of the feature since they are each scored?
While the 8 surrounding tiles act like parts of the cloister feature for completion and scoring purposes, they are not part of the feature in the sense you are asking about here: only followers on the tile with the cloister are "in the cloister" feature.
2) Are the 3 bonus points available to only the player who get the feature points or any player on the feature when its scored.
The points go to each player who has a follower in a scored feature on the tile with the fairy.
3) Lastly, does the fairy and scoring player have to be on/in the feature itself to get the points or just on one of the same tiles that has part of the feature being scored.
Fairy points are only awarded to players who have a follower (1) on the same tile as the fairy, and (2) in the feature being scored.
The rules really dont seem to differentiate between tile and feature for purposes of scoring.
Features are scored when they are completed, but points are awarded for each tile spanned by the feature (though as noted above, cloisters are a bit different).
Note also that in all my answers above I've used the term "follower"* rather than meeple deliberately. Pigs and builders also get 3 fairy points.
