That's meant for the wiki page content only. It does not say anything
about your schematics or code etc. Please integrate the proper license
in the schematics (PDF, JPG, whatever) as well as in the code (if any).

I guess you could do that, but again, note that those are only for the wiki
page contents. The license of schematics and code should be noted in the
schematics and in the code.

The decision which license to use for code or schematics is yours, of
course. Using GPL for code and CC-BY-SA for schematics is pretty common,
I think, but you get to choose...
