HostAP + WEP rekeying + hostapd.conf

i'm using HostAP and 802.1x executing this command:

hostapd -x -o192.168.49.222 -a192.168.49.222 -ssecret_pass -SSecureAP -b5 -i
5 wlan0 &

It's running OK using FreeRADIUS in the same machine, with EAP-TLS
I've two questions:

1. I've read about a 'hostapd.conf' file, but I don't know this file'
structure. Where can I find it ? I want to configure rekeying time and I
don't know how to do it in the command line...

2. Is there any method to use EAP-TLS without client certification, using
something like 'login/password' ?
