<i>
1- Details on what?s considered as sensitive data and what?s not: from
a Merchant perspective is provided by Visa on page of
https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/pdfs/pci_fs_data_storage.pdf;
however, i could not find any as for the Acquirer/Issuer/Service
Provider perspective; any pointers?</i>

Sensitive data is account name, PAN, CVV/CVV2.

<i>2- what are the deadlines/fines for non compliance, for
Merchants/Acquirers/Issuers/Service Providers respectively?</i>

Universal deadlines are bogus.  Listen to those with whom you have a contractual relationship.  For you, that would be 
the card brands themselves.  For merchants, it would be the acquiring bank.

<i>3- being an issuer/acquirer (bank for ex), am i required to comply
with PCI DSS? if so, what are the requirements?</i>

Yes, you are required to comply.  "DSS" stands for Data Security Standard.  The DSS <i>is</i> the requirement.  Read 
the DSS to understand what your requirements are.
