Answer
Amram... well, to answer all your questions, I would need to write a book...grin..  and many people have.  I suggest you visit some of the major bookstores and look through all the various books they have on this subject of writing articles for magazines.

but to try to give you a few clues...the first one would be find the type of magazine you want to write for...write to them and request their submission guidelines... then decide if you have an idea for that magazine that fits within their guidelines.
