If you change out the interior door, must you also change the molding or casement?
Depends on the door you would like to change. If it has moulded panel type door you must change according to the profile.Even it depends on paint that you are going to use.
No, unless you buy it with the frame. Then you have to remove the old casing to put in the new door frame and it usually makes a mess of the old casing. If you just change out the door, then it doesn't matter. The old casing will work fine. **Just remember that unless you use the exact same door casing (trim), it might not match up with the baseboards. Make sure to get the same width in your door casing or there will be a gap where the door casing meets the floor.
No, not always. You can often get away with just swapping out the door. The most important thing is to make sure you get one that is the same size.
If you have a used building supply outlet around, they often have some good deals on doors too.
You do not have to change it out.
If you go this route, however, be careful when removing it, you don't want the molding to break. If it does you will be forced to replace it.
Also, unless you are comfortable using a miter saw I would say definitely use your existing molding.

Many people like to leave their bedroom doors open at night. In the event of a fire, this could prove deadly. By keeping the door closed you will buy some time from heat, fire and smoke. If your excuse is small children, purchase monitors and close the doors. Keep in mind, the smoke will kill you...
