Begin your adventure by choosing one of three new partner Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble and encounter new and familiar Pokémon as you catch, battle, and trade. Players can control the camera and explore the vast areas around them in the Wild Area. Team up with other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles. Trainers who possess the special item Dynamax Band can Dynamax their own Pokémon. Get ready for the next Pokémon adventure in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games.

So long as you have one of the games (and a Nintendo Switch Online membership), you can play online with anyone who has either version of the game (and the aforementioned membership).
Not exactly? The game is largely single player, but there are events like battles/trades/raids that can be completed as a multiplayer setting as long as there are two consoles. The switch changes up this game a little because now you can have multiple save files by using different accounts on a single switch. A feature previously unavailable in past Pokémon games. So while two people couldn’t play at once on the same device, two people can play the same game by taking turns by utilizing multiple switch accounts.
Yes, there are version exclusive Pokémon (like Sableye is in Shield and Mawile is in Sword) and some version exclusive evolutions (Applin will evolve when given a certain item that is different in each version)
There is both, if you don't have internet connection then you can play the whole game offline and the expansion. But online makes some of the game easier and more enjoyable
most likely the original casing
Yes...? Its called a switch lite for a reason
Hey there! Since this is a Switch-based game that saves its data onto the Switch itself rather than the physical game chip itself, you will not get anyone else’s save file if you buy a pre-owned copy. That only happens with the handheld games! Hope this helps!
The game you are looking for is Lets Go Pikachu and Lets Go Eevee. That game connects to Pokemon GO. Pokemon Sword and Shield does not connect straight to Pokemon GO, but does connect to Pokemon HOME.
