I make stuffed cabbage ( cooked) and freeze it with no bad effects. SO yes cooked it can be frozen quite successfully.

Yes. Just shred it, put it into a ziplock bag and freeze it.
You can also make it up like sauerkraut and freeze it in a ziplock bag.

Yes, Shred the cabbage, blanch it in hot water for a minute or two, drain it, cool, bag up in batches, freeze.
When you thaw it to use, it wont need as long cooking.

I freeze cabbage soup and it is fine. The cabbage is cooked.
I freeze an entire head of raw cabbage, and when I go to make cabbage rolls out of it, I put the cabbage in a sink of water, which slowly thaws out the leaves, one layer at a time .. which I peel off .. and because of the freezing they are now soft enough to roll INTO cabbage rolls. Which are then slowly baked in tomato juice until the rice filling has cooked and absorbed all the juice,
I would never freeze a cabbage if I intended to eat it raw. That might work, after all, but I would not expect it to work.

I have made stuffed cabbage soup and frozen portions of it and it was fine.
I have made stuffed cabbage and frozen portions and heating it up again the cabbage rolls were fine.
I do not think I would freeze raw cabbage unless it was going to be used later in a soup

It will be the consistency of frozen spinach. All the crispness will be lost.

No, leafy vegetables do not freeze well, cooked or uncooked.
