1. Is ID3DXEffect creates render state block for those declared in "pass scope"?
technique tech
{
	pass p0
	{
		ALPHABLENDENABLE = TRUE;
		...
		...
	}
}

2. Does it do that at creation time (D3DXCreateEffectFromFile)?

3. Does it stores state block for each pass?

4. I guess it restores "old state" after EndPass() method?

5. What about sampler states?
texture decal_tex;
sampler decal_samp = sampler_state
{
	Texture	 = <decal_tex>;
	MIPFILTER   = LINEAR;
	MAGFILTER   = LINEAR;
	MINFILTER   = LINEAR;
	ADDRESSU	= BORDER;
	ADDRESSV	= BORDER;
	BORDERCOLOR = 0xFFFFFFFF;
};

Does it do the same thing?

Thanks for your time.

The documentation answers your qurestions: there are D3DXFX_DONOTSAVESTATE, D3DXFX_DONOTSAVESAMPLERSTATE and D3DXFX_DONOTSAVESHADERSTATE flags available for D3DXCreateEffect, so you may assume that by default an effect will save and restore states via state blocks and that it also includes sampler states.

It appears that the gentleman thought C++ was extremely difficult and he was overjoyed that the machine was absorbing it; he understood that good C++ is difficult but the best C++ is well-nigh unintelligible.
