Probably a typo/misunderstanding. 445 is for all SMB implementations.

Yes to both. That's what the slight understatement "may cause
disruptions on systems that require port 445" means.

Samba in itself is not vulnerable to ETERNALBLUE, so it cannot be
infected by WannaCry.

However, vulnerable clients with write access to Samba shares can still
encrypt files on Samba shares and render them useless, so you should
still make sure you can detect ransomware attacks and make sure your
backups work.
