Well I have time, I do not know a lot of the tags beneficts but it looks important for correctly search for information.

Lots of examples where they are not correctly tagged when we talk about geology.

Should I edit the posts to correctly classify the info?

The trouble I see is my editions would need to be reviewed and some ancient questions will appear at active list if I review them.

I wonder too if I should add tags that are deduced from the answer and not from the question. (Imagine "What is this? I tag is as geology "It is a rock, then tagged as petrology too).

I think you should feel free to edit tags every time you find it appropriate. If you have time to do so, it would be a great service to the community.

I've reviewed the tagging of the questions I've answered a few time and I do find annoying that all those questions get bumped to the top of the active questions list.

In Meta I saw other people complaining about the same thing, but it seem like the people behind SE thinks that is a desirable behaviour. And to be fare is not a big deal.

I would suggest that you go ahead with all the retagging you find is necessary, ideally doing it in very large or very small batches. If you do a lot of questions in one go you will monopolize the list of active questions just a few times. On the other hand, if you do it just a couple question at a time. It would be a nice way to boost the activity of the site and it won't bury other questions too deep in the list.

As the subject of the question is not going to be changed, I think I am gonna do it with some order and in groups of 3 each day, changing only when it is clear and obvious and avoiding bad questions.
