Thank you Yannick and André.
So just to precise thinks;
1/ If I make an installation for a customer, he (the final customer) could get a mail from anyone requesting the code used in his instance?
Only if you are using the Website module. Otherwise, only registered users of the instance can request the code.

2/ Is it correct that the code to be provided access to, would be only the modules used publicly on the website (and not a module that is used internally - only in the backend)?
It's a tricky question, but the interpretation by Odoo and OCA seems to be: for Odoo 9, that's correct. For Odoo 8, all modules must be provided. That was one of the benefits pointed out to justify the switch from AGPL to LGPL of the core:
3/ Who is responsible? the hoster? the implementer?
The hoster, as the one distributing the code.
good weekend

In short, it depends:

AGPL means the users of your software must have access to your code.

Thus if your software can be accessed publicly, it must be publicly available.

If it is in a private network it must be accessible by the users of
this private network.

And it also mean people who have access to the code have the freedom
to do what ever they want with it.
Users having the source code are allow to publish it as long as they
respect the mention of copyright and authors.
