I'd say one file, funcdesc.cxx, corresponding to funcdesc.hxx. But that is just my personal opinion.

As the code is the same (just rearranged into different files), the license header should be the same.

Yes, that should be enough for your testing; if/when you then want to make a patch out of it, you need to git add the new files to your local repository clone.)
