Good question.

* Does the config file should be limited by GNU GPLv3?

Copyright of GlusterFS does not cover the copyright of the volume specification file.
If you have written a volume spec file, you own the copyright of it.

* If I write a translator or a scheduler or an authentication module, do I have to comply 
with GNU GPLv3 license?

GNU GPLv3 license only comes into effect when you re-distribute. If you are using it
for your own use, you can may any proprietary change you want.
