{jIwIv'a' jIH} is okay, the {-'e'} is also fine, but not mandatory. It 
just adds the emphasis.

This is wrong; the pronoun behaves as a noun, so it can't take a verb

As with your previous questions: you can add a verb suffix to a pronoun 
if the pronoun acts as a verb, and of course when it makes sense.

{tlhIngan jIH'a'?} "Am I a Klingon?" is perfect.
