I'd agree with all/most of the answers given so far.
It might be easier to give some general advice that will address most of the original 15(!) questions, rather than tackling them individually.
1) Get a good growing book!
A good book - one of the many titles by Ed Rosenthal, Jorge Cervantes or Mel Frank, for instance - is worth its weight in buds (or in ice-o-lator hash, in the long run).
A book will inform you of all the basic elements you need to give your plants - light, air, soil, water, nutrient, pots etc - plus the most common problems to look out for - pests and diseases, deficiencies, over-watering/feeding, pH, and so on.
Having a growing book gives you a reference for when things go wrong, and also allows you to be confident that you have supplied the primary needs of your plants, which will allow you to:
2) Chill out!
For the most part, your plants will take care of themselves. As long as you have the basic elements right, plants will grow as normal and perform in the way they're meant to. There's no need to stress yourself over most things.
When there's a real problem with your plants, it will usually be very obvious - discoloured or dying foliage, strange or weak growth, visible pests or fungus, generally unhealthy-looking plants.
In such cases, you may have good reason to stress, but in general, just make sure you have the basic elements correct, trust in your plants (they know what they're doing) and wait. Unless you've made a large mistake, things should turn out well.
Just to emphasise a couple of things that other forum-members have pointed out:
Light Pollution is a definite no-no for flowering plants. You should do everything you can to make sure that your plants receive 12 hours of complete darkness every day. A small amount of extra light at the beginning and/or end of the dark cycle is not as bad as light pollution in the middle of the dark cycle, but every extra minute of light can add to the chance of your plants reverting from flowering to vegetative growth.
The pistils (hairs) on female flowers will change colour over time, according to their own age. The first pistils growing from the first calyxes that a plant produces will be the first to change colour. Within a few weeks of showing themselves, the hairs will darken.
As the first pistils are changing colour, the plant (if it's healthy and unpollinated) will be producing more and more new calyxes/pistils, so in the first 6 weeks of flowering plants will still have a majority of white hairs.
Beyond this point (how far beyond depends on the variety), old pistils are changing colour faster than new ones are being produced, so plants are approaching their ripest point.
When 50-75% of the pistils on a whole plant have changed colour, it's a good time to harvest.
If your plants have only a few calyxes, and if the pistils on most of them have changed colour, and if few or no new calyxes are being produced, then you may have a problem with your plants.
If a plant stops producing new calyxes very early in flowering, this can be a sign that it's already been thoroughly pollinated (check your room carefully for male plants) or that it's dying due to bad conditions, and doesn't have the strength to make new calyxes.
The most likely situation is that the pistils on your plant are changing colour normally, and there's nothing to worry about.

By the way, don't keep reposting your questions, or spam the forums in any other way.
Repeating a question won't get it answered any faster, and it might get your account deleted if we have to keep removing double and triple-posted messages.
