1, 3, & 4: any video editing program will do these things. They are very basic functions.
2: you can't. The only way to do this is if the footage is shot on a green or blue screen and you know how to do a chroma key.
5: I don't think youtube will do these things. It may have basic trimming abilities but that's about it.
6: I'm not sure I know what you are asking but if you want to edit a video from youtube, you have to download it. Youtube doesn't allow downloading. It can be done however but it is not exactly legal.
7: try a free program called Audacity. It should do this for you.
8: I don't think so.
9: Windows Movie Maker is free and should do these things. Other than that, I don't know of any other good freeware.

Good luck.
