I think that the rough idea of policies included in "five pillars"
should be applied in all Wikipedias, but it does not mean that they
have to be applied as direct translations - i.e each project has a
right to rephrase the text of these policies according to its
historical and cultural background - as long as the core meaning of
the rule is not changed. Bear in mind that five pillars were also
adopted in English Wikipedia gradually - ie. the text of them changed
over the time substantially and it is even changing right now.

All other policies can but not need to be applied. At least in Polish
Wikipedia it works in such a way that we look at policies on English,
German and other Wikipedias and apply some of them directly, some
after rephrasing some we do not apply at all, and we have some
regulation which are Polish-specific only  :-)
