Is Iqama obligatory if a person is praying alone at home? 
Is Iqama necessary if you are offering qaza prayers?
Is Adhan and Iqama both necessary if praying alone at home?

Iqama is not something that is ever obligatory.  It's simply recommended.  Most of our jurists are of the opinion that one should recite Iqama even if they pray alone at home, and even if they are offering qada prayers.  But they also say your prayer is valid even if you don't recite Iqama.

Adhan is definitely obligatory that's mentioned in the Noble Quran, but to the best of my knowledge it is obligatory in the masjid when the muezzin performs the Adhan.  If you are praying at home, whether alone or with your family, then there is no need for Adhan.  If you like, you can perform the Iqama.  Adhan is for the purpose of informing the neighborhood around the masjid to get ready for prayers.  Some jurists do insist that if one cannot go to the masjid and prays at home (even if they're alone), they should perform both Adhan and Iqama at home.  But this specific idea is not highlighted in the Quran as it's clearly not logical. 

To conclude:  Adhan, the obligatory call for prayers, is meant to be sounded from the masjid.   And Iqama, whether in the masjid or at home is optional.
