This is a full day job with about 25 steps. Nobody is going to sit here and type it all out for you. This is where you really need a shop manual with diagrams and torque specs. Check with your public library to see if they have one for free online. Don't do this job without a manual and diagrams.

Nothing, if the battery is new you may have a bad starter.
Check ground wire from starter to where it's bolted to the frame; if you see corrosion remove cable and clean with a wire brush. Reset cable see if engine cranks. While you're at it, do the same thing to your battery ground cable. Good luck.

It depends on the motor size.

Manufacturers recommend a particular grade of motor oil for the engine to ensure best operation and fuel economy. That said, yes, you can use other grades....but be advised that they must match the codes (such as SF-CC). 10W-40 is used by many drivers in warmer weather when they are driving long distances and subjecting the engine to highers temperatures and stress. I wouldn't recommend it be used in very cold weather as it will not provide as good a start-up lubrication as the 5W-30.
