    If you store data in same partition as OS, it makes backups and reset/reinstalls of Windows harder.

    Also image backups grow over time. You can optimise backups eg OS monthly, and data daily according to your usage pattern.

    Yes if you don't have anything to keep on whole disk. Windows will make partitions to suit your system. If you wish to partition further, you can do that later on.

    You might feel more comfortable if you invited a friend who's familiar with this sort of thing to help you.

    That's probably your USB stick. Just BOOT of it and start installation as planed.

    If that BIOS has UEFI option than you should set it first so it can make UEFI partition. If it doesn't than your only option is Legacy mode.

    Should work either way. If all HW is right I can't see why would you get any errors.
