these have inderpendant suspension and can look like the top of rear tyres are further in than the bottom, if both sides are about the same then is prob normal.
If you carry a lot of weight in the rear regulary then would reccommend a wheel alignment when the vehicle is fully loaded.
otherwise take a look at the tread of the rear tyres, if the edges have worn a lot more than the centre then an alignment is due...

caster is adjusted at the rear of the lower control arms. Camber is fixed and cannot be adjusted by normal means (though special off-set ball joints are available to do that) Toe in is adjusted by turning the sleeves in or out on the tie rod ends. None of this should be done at home though crude adjustments can be made in order to get the front end reasonably straight. Adjustments are made on an alignment machine that allows precise adjustments to all you mentioned as well as front/rear tracking.
