Thank you for your advice.
Using the relative media path works well and I can do exactly what I want.

Some follow up questions
If I want to send the family tree to some one else:
01. Do I leave the media path as relative or do I need to set it back to
absolute? 
02. I assume I should export as Gramps XML Package (family tree and media)
to send or transfer?

If you send as xml, then it does not matter how the media path is. If you send as xml package, then Gramps will make it so that everything becomes relative with respect to where the package will extract the media. If you leave everything as relative, this will be easiest, as Gramps will on import of the package only change the relative media path to where the media is extracted. Try it :-)
 
03. Do I need to download / transfer / upload separately the media files?
04. If the answer to 03 is 'no', where will the media files be in the other
person's machine?

With a package, the media will be extracted to a directory in the home directory. Try it on your machine, it is straightforward.

05. To accommodate the media, does the other person have to set up the exact
folder structure that I have?


Gramps will do that automatically with the package.
