    1. read the sticky, it contains lot of informations to know if the latest version is compatible.
    2. it means to hack the vWii, you need to be at a specific place in the game. you need to have played that game and create a savegame before attempting to hack the vWii. If you never played/created a savegame, you can't install the hack. There are hacks that don't need to create savegame first (Smash Bros brawl hack for example)
    3. yes, if you don't read the sticky and follow the instructions it can brick vWii.
    4. yes, if you don't read the sticky and follow the instructions it also affects WiiU.
    5. one SD is enough (no HDD needed to hack). Once hacked, it depend what you want to do with it (SD or HDD, and their size or number depends only on your intention. If you want ALLLLL existing Wii and gamecube games, you can have ONE 4TB HDD or 40 small 100GB HDDs and 800 SD cards of 1GB.....)
    6. no
    7. yes, from vWii, like on Wii.


    Again, first start reading all the stickies. They contains lot of informations.
    especially this one :
