d: "do they recognize western jerusalem as capital of Israel?" Not at the moment, no. There is the possibility that they will finesse this issue further, to the point where: 1) "Jerusalem" is the capital of Israel 2) "Qods" is the capital of Palestine 3) "Jerusalem" is "Qods" (and vice versa). 4) Israeli SOVEREIGNTY over "Jerusalem" ends at the western edge of the Green Line, and Palestinian SOVEREIGNTY over "Qods" ends at the eastern edge of the Green Line. At which point, of course, the question: Q1: what is the capital of Israel? gives a different answer to the question Q2: who has sovereignty over Jerusalem? Because: A1: "Jerusalem" A2: Israel up to the Green Line, and Palestine thereafter.
