    You need to adjust the float. If it's an old tank and you want to not have as much water, you can put a quart plastic milk carton in. Fill the carton with water. If you don't have that much space, you can use a gallon freezer bag filled with rocks.

    Recommendation used to be placing a brick in the tank

    Put bricks in the tank so there's less water that drains into the bowl.

    A brick in the tank works fine

    Nothing you can do. There is no adjustment. The shape of the trapway in the toilet determines the height.

    In a toilet , the level in the bowl will rise until it is above the weir in the trapway.

    Putting a jug of water, brick, or anything else will just reduce the amount of water used for a flush. Saves on you water bill. It will not reduce the water level in the bowl.

    Place a brick down inside the tank. Just don't trap anything important so it can't move.

    if your tank still uses a ball shut off bar, bend the bar downward a bit till you have enough water for a clean full flush. If not add 1 or 2 bricks to cut down on the water volume

    Yes, it's the tank that fills the bowl.
