This question is very broad but I'l try to answer it as best as I can. As already mentioned there are no "standard sizes" for icons and you should edit your question to include what you're targeting. Are you: Creating an app for Apple? App icon required for all apps: 180 x 180 120 x 120 152 x 152 76 x 76 App required icon for the App store: 1024 x ...
Yes, if your asset is 55 pixels for the 1× size, then you'll be after 110 for 2× and 165 for 3×. The iPhone 6 Plus should be treated as a full 3× UI scale device.

In order to remove this restriction, change the ...
You can also export the file to Illustrator paths if you have a lot of shapes to convert by going File > Export > Paths to Illustrator.
