Hi Kyle, welcome to the lists.  I'm not a committer but I'll give answering
your questions a shot.

Yes, anybody can register and submit/comment on JIRA issues in the Metron

I've seen small commits get merged in the past but aside from that I'm not
sure.  See

The bylaws have some good information.  It is also important to prefix any
commits with the corresponding JIRA tracking information so they get linked
together automatically.

I hope that helps - if not, others should be able to provide more detail.
