The largest tire you can run on a bike is determined by several things: Frame (If it rubs on the frame when you're riding it, you're going to ruin the paint on your bike and the tire) Brakes (If your brakes can't clear the tire, you have a problem) Rim Width (If the rim is too narrow or wide for a tire, you can have increased chances of rim/tire damage or ...

No, it is by no means universal. Frames are built with a maximum tire size in mind. Some bike include a maximum size in their specs, so you might check to see. Otherwise, it is easy enough to figure out. Since you have tires on the bike already, you can check the existing clearance and get a very good idea of what will fit. Start by measuring the ...

This is probably more complicated than you think it is. This depends on your bike. A lot of bikes which are spec'd with say 42t front chainrings for the big ring can't clear a 50t big ring in the front without the chain interfering with something. You'll also have to worry about chain line and possibly installing something to prevent the chain dropping. ...

You probably don't need to purchase a new crankset. You can remove the the rings you don't need and simply add a new ring. You'll need to know the distance of the bolt holes of your current chainrings/crank. This is known as the BCD (bolt circle diameter) and you can usually find it stamped on the chainring. Common sizes include 130mm, 110mm, 94mm, etc. ...

The kit you link to is to replace a cassette on a freehub. What you have is a freewheel, not a freehub. You need a screw-on freewheel, such as those fitted to BMX and trials bikes. I recommend one with removal lugs (cheaper freewheels don't). I currently use a White Industries freewheel on one of my bikes. It's expensive, but I've been using it for years ...
