I'll answer you as best I can.

No, you don't need separate files to post to Mutopia.  I know that with
some big pieces they release both the complete work and separate parts, but
using separate files to create a complex piece is a good thing.  I think
that the exact way to setup a complex piece to be usable as both separate
parts and a complete piece is not yet agreed upon -- I could be wrong.

If you're creating multipart sheet music with LilyPond, I think you're a
step above novice.  But if you'd like I'd be happy to look at your ly and
ily files and give you my comments.  But this is absolutely not required to
submit to Mutopia.  The two things I know are requirements are that your
submission be able to compile in both letter and a4 paper sizes without
warnings or errors, and that you're able to provide a source that is not
under copyright.  The first one may be difficult in your situation, but
honestly, I usually write my pieces to look good in letter and just work in
a4.  That's because I live in the US I guess.  Honestly, I don't know how a
well-typeset piece is expected to look good in two different paper sizes.
But that's a discussion for another day.

I hope to see your submission to Mutopia soon!
