I cannot help you with the desire to have different alerts for each
appointment but I can point you to org-icalendar-alarm-time for the
actual warning time which applies to all items exported.  The default is
indeed no warning but I have

  (setq org-icalendar-alarm-time 10)

to give me 10 minutes' warning.

In any case, I also wanted to note that appointments should not have
scheduled and/or deadline information, just active time stamps.  TODO
items, on the other hand, could/should have scheduling information.  In
other words, an appointment can be as simple as:

  * Meet with Joe and Martha
    <2016-01-15 Fri 11:00-12:00>
