Are The low swing safeties in the market all 2 position safeties? Do they locks the bolt in down position when safety engaged or still can open to eject the chambered round? Military mauser safety has 3 positions.

The Timney 2 position safety on my Yugo work just like the OEM safety except it eliminates the middle position. You cannot keep the gun on safe and open the bolt.

If you want to keep the 3 position utility and mount a scope, you'll probably have to spend some $$$ and hire a gunsmith to install a 3 position aftermarket safety. (That's probably a $300-$400 proposition)

How about those side safeties on triggers? I suppose they only lock triggers, not bolts, correct?

Correct. All that I have seen block the trigger only.
