What map does "ArcGIS For Silverlight" use ? "Bing" map?

There are many basemaps available including but not limited to Bing Maps. The web help page: http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapps/silverlightviewer/help/index.html#/Application_Builder/01770000000...

Can "ArcGIS For Silverlight" use custom 3D map?

What is a "custom 3D map"? An ArcGlobe document? Then nope, it can visualize only with 2D data since it consumes map services. There is some development on 3D in Silverlight: http://blogs.esri.com/esri/apl/2010/10/08/3d-terrain-mapping-in-a-browser/.
Silverlight 4 as far as I know does not support 3D, which means ArcGIS API for Silverlight does not support working in 3D either. The 3D support may come in Silverlight 5, and maybe Esri will implement something for 3D.
You might check the ArcGIS Explorer Desktop which can work with 3D-data: http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/explorer/demos.html.

One: Should use "ArcGIS Server REST services" be charge ? What service is free? Bing maps service is not free???

Two: Must call service? Create your own map not line? Like the 2D custom maps , not 3D...

There are many ArcGIS Server REST services available for free to you:
http://sampleserver1.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services
http://sampleserver2.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services
http://sampleserver3.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services
http://services.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services
And many more. You don't to have to have ArcGIS Server license in order to use those services.

If you have bought ArcGIS Server, then you can create your own services and consume them locally in your own applications.

Bing Maps is not free per se for programmatic consumption - the access comes with ArcGIS Desktop license (so you can add Bing Maps as a basemap) and ArcGIS Server license (is in the license file with keycodes). You'd need to use the Bing Maps key in your local ArcGIS Server installation if you are planning to add Bing Maps to your applications.
