Raises to five of the agreed major suit?

Assume you and partner have agreed on a major trump suit. Do your preferred methods include well-defined answers to these questions:

1. How do you play a non-jump raise to five of the major trump suit?

2. How do you play a jump raise to five of the major trump suit?

3. How does interference affect either of these 5M bids?

4. How does the number of unbid suits (by our side) affect either of these 5M bids?

This topic came up in another post but I think the questions are interesting enough to deserve a topic of their own.

I'm fairly certain that the answers to all four questions would result in conflicts even in the best of my partnerships. I'm hoping to hear a well-defined set of agreements that isn't too complex for my partners and me to remember. These agreements can vary in level of complexity for players at different levels of course.
