1. As a date, you can say twenty twenty-five, but as a regular number, it's two thousand twenty-five. You don't want the word "and" in there. That word usually indicates a decimal.
2. "In the year two thousand" is clearer when you are indicating the calendar year.
3. Your second sentence is correct.
5. Either works fine; they mean the same thing.
6. "How long..." is better, smoother.
7. Either question is fine; the second is smoother.
