This changes the behavior only if you use --force (or some magic refspec
starting with +). If you never used --force or +refspecs, you never did
a non-fast-forward push.

Activated by default, so if you never did anything about it, it was
already active.

No, they are not. non-FF means you're trying to push a commit which is
not a direct descendant of the remote one, i.e. you're trying to
override the remote history with yours. See 'NOTE ABOUT FAST-FORWARDS'
in "man git-push".
