2. Impeachments are not court hearings.

No one can "bring" someone in to testify.

5. It is a "trial". Witnesses can certainly be subpoenaed.

From: The Impeachment Process in the Senate, Congressional Research Service (https://crsreports.congress.gov/product/pdf/R/R46185)

The Senate impeachment rules do not address the selection of witnesses. In practice, the Senate determines which witnesses will be heard, if any. (If a trial committee is used, the trial committee selects and subpoenas the witnesses.)The parties to the case do not have the right under the rules to call whom they choose. To be clear, it is the House Managers and counsel for the impeached who know the charges and know what evidence they would like to present, and,in practice,the Senate weighs their requests heavily. In some recent trials, the Senate has requested pretrial statements or trial memoranda from both parties, which discuss possible evidence to be presented, including desired witnesses. On the basis of such requests, the Senate (or the trial committee) decides which witnesses to hear and possibly subpoena.

4. I believe witnesses can be subpoenaed. I want to hear from Pence. Ask him what Trump said

6. When will the Senate take it up?

Will it be under McConnell and before Trump leaves office in a week?

9. Not until the Senate is back after January 19th apparently...

McConnell Rejects Emergency Session On Impeachment, All But Killing Push To Oust Trump
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has rejected a plan to reconvene the Senate in an emergency session to hold trial over an impeachment article against President Trump in the House.

McConnell press secretary Doug Andres confirmed a report that the Kentucky Republican would not sanction such a move on Wednesday.

Without the emergency session, the Senate is due back in session on Jan. 19, so McConnell’s decision all but kills a Democrat-led effort to oust Trump from office before his term is up and President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20. A trial over the impeachment article is unlikely to conclude within such a short time.
