Commercially grown hops are suspended up by a trellis/rope system. They do not touch the ground. A dog would have to be a contortionist too pee on them. The OP said these were lying on the ground.

Whole or pellet is entirely personal preference.

They start to turn brown if you leave them on the bine too long. First they feel papery (ready to pick), then they start to turn brown.

Yes, room temperature or just below that is fine for conditioning your bottles. Thanks for converting C to F for us ignorant Yanks. Do Israelis call us Yanks?

Yes.
Tastes good.

Your airlock cannot tell you if fermentation is done, only your hydrometer.

I have used extra hop pellets with that kit with great results. If you have aroma hops, you can add them the last five minutes of the boil to give the beer a "fresher" hop aroma than you get from...

Yes, but you have to keep training the bines by hand to go horizontally. Left alone, they will try to grow up. I did the same thing this year with success.

Don't forget to figure in your extract into your initial volume figure. The first time I did a full boil, I ended up with 5 1/2 gallons because I failed to account for the cans of extract.

No. That hose is a blow-off tube. You would only use it during primary fermentation. Search the forum for "Blow off tube" for more info. It's much simpler to just use an airlock for secondary.
