    Yes....Unless you are buying it from well respected broker. you should check as many places as you can...majestic-ahrefs-semrush-opensite explorer etc.

    check to see if its still indexed by google. check the web archive wayback machine to see what was parked on the domain.

    Theres a few other threads about domain buying with better advice but short answer is yes.

    If you want to rank the site itself, then yes
    but if you are using it for backlinking then no.

    So long as the backlink pointing to the site is still
    there the penalty remains unless if diluted or removed.

    Yes, it may have penalties, you need to check the backink profile of domains and see if its clean.

    Also just search your domain on google, if its not penalized, it will show up in first spot.

    Simple.

    If manual action, yes. You need to send reconsideration request.
    If not manual action, no. Once you put frsh website, there will be no worries.
