1) Is there a way to provide translated "Summary" and "Description" fields in
the RPM spec file ?
2) Is this translation handled by the translation team, or should the
packagers try to provide it in as many languages as possible ?

I'm not that sure whether we can actually feed these or new translations

I didn't find any mention of this neither in the openSUSE packaging

It would be great if you could document it.
