This is Snowolf's three part waxing video, which is very descriptive and accurate.
In response to your questions:
1 to clean it (remove all wax from the base), use a special snowboard or ski base wax remover, or a gentle citrus house cleaner
2 Go to your local store and ask for what types of wax they have. I don't really care about brands, i generally buy what's on sale
3 You can get rub on wax, but it wears off in about 2 runs. Go for melt on wax, it lasts a tonne longer ( this is the normal kind)
4 ( watch the videos for this one)
5 This is all up to personal preference, conditions (snow-wise) and amount of time boarding. When you start to see the edges of your board turning white (drying out) then you should re apply. I do this maybe once ever two days out. (7+ hours)
