It can act as a WLC only if it is configured as part of the fabric of DNA

 

  • C9800 Wireless Software Package can be enabled on Catalyst 9300 Series switches functioning as Fabric in a Box

2. If the C9300 can't as Wirless LAN Controller, Can provide the suggest model?

You can take a look at the 9800 series

3. How many clients support connected to AP3802, AP1852 and AP1562?

This depends on several things and I dont think it is related with the AP, seems a questions more related with the WLC. You can open a case with CISCO TAC to ask this.
