    won't loose the rankings if being redirected to a fresh or non penalized domain.. but few terms might drop a bit if the kw was in the domain name

    I'd not sure I understand you clearly.

    If you mean, will the new site inherit the old good ranking, I'd say partially and it would take time (though not too much time). That is, if you're the first owner of the new domain and you haven't spammed it heavily.

    Unless you're doing some re-branding I can't see why this would be a good decision.

    Hopefully I understood your question correctly :)

    if the new site that you redirect to has relevant,unique content as the previous domain,then no,it wont loose rankings at all,BUT if you are redirecting to a site that has different content,topics etc,then yes,after a while,the site will loose its rankings

    If you mean a 301 redirect, then yes, the old domain will lose its rankings, and furthermore it will be excluded from search engines' index. Suppose the old domain was about recipes, if the new domain is also about recipes, then it will slowly start ranking better for its own keywords and/or for the old domain's keywords. If the new domain is not in the same niche as the old one, then the impact won't be that good. Hope that makes sense.

    It depends on the kind of content you are redirecting to i think. It also depends on the se itself.

    It might lose a couple of spots when you redirect to a related niche.

    This ^^

    Relevancy is everything, once a site hasn't already a been penalised and the content is similar to that on the original site you shoul dbe good to go.

    For small sites, It won't lose any rankings. Even redirects properly carried out on large sites won't cause any drop in rankings.

    I have done it a few times and it does work. But I think it will depend how well the new site is optimized for the keywords as to how long it lasts.
