Irrespective of the department, the process of Performance Appraisal (PA) remains same. What changes is the measurement criteria or measures of performance.
It appears that you do not have proper Policy on Performance Appraisal (PA) well in place. When employees join the company, during induction itself they should be told that when their appraisal will take place. The salient features of policy could be as below:
a) Appraisal may be done quarterly or half-yearly. Appraisal cycle of one year is too long. Nevertheless, salary hike may be done a son 1st April or 1st Oct.
b) Employees who join in between, when their first PA will take that can be decided in the policy.
c) % of salary hike should be linked to the score of PA.
The important point is PA concentrates only on the individual performance. We need to go beyond and measure the business performance. For this you need to have well-designed policy on Performance Management System (PMS). There was query in this forum on PMS. I have given reply to this post.

As You asked for Performance evaluation,
1. Can be done once an employee completes his/her probation period and or as mentioned in your company's policy of evaluation that may be vary as for quarter/Half-yearly. But to evaluation for one is too long.
2. The score is calculated from the score he got from the evaluation which can be fixed by the HR.
3. Performance appraisal may not differ from Dept to Dept in my view but by the hierarchical it may differ and that depending upon the HOD's Concern .
