1) Only you can tell what your bandwidth is. Contact your ISP to find out, we cannot tell you from here
2) I hope your not actualy going to have people *Pay* for this server...

you don't really have any bandwidth limits at home they usually give you a capped connection. the problem you might run into is that your internet company may not allow you to host these types of things on your home connection. Check with your provider to make sure

Most ISPs block ports 80, 21, 22, 23, 25, 107, 109, 110, and loads of others. Port 8080 is oftentimes used when such restrictions are placed. However, some ISPs block this port as well.

Ports aren't of any relevance. There's 65537 ports for you to chose from.

If he's trying to set up a home server, ports are completely relevant. But yes, there are quite a few ports to choose from ;)

Not when you can run your server on practically any of them. :p
