  1. It's being used as an adverb and needs a comma after it ... but it's used correctly (not a participle, though).

  3. A present participle does have an -ing ending on it -- but no -ly ending, too!

    Scaring his sister, the boy ...
    (you finish the sentence)

    Howling into the wind, the dog ...

    Or make up your own!

  5. No. In that sentence, it's not clear what "amazing" is modifying. Participles are verbal adjectives; they must be modifying a noun or pronoun.

    Amazing their friends with their new skills, the players ...
    In that sentence, the participle and its phrase are modifying "players" -- now finish the sentence, with "players" as the subject.
