I will try to answer your questions:
1) People buy photos for various reasons. We do have some possible usages listed according to licenses offered on our site here https://www.dreamstime.com/aboutimages
2) Users on our site create collections in which they add images from several contributors. Images must be on a common topic. You can see collections here https://www.dreamstime.com/collections_list
3) Some of our contributors donate images for the free section. generally, they donate images with no download for more than one year or images that do not qualify for the commercial section.
4) You can do your own keywording or you can use the keymaster program.
5) Check most popular and stats areas for info:
6) These are typical questions for any newcomer.
You can also ask on the forum as Littledesire mentioned.
