4'-6" is the min. height per the website.
The manufacturer's website states they are made in USA.
I wouldn't try that, the wind would take the roof off and there is no bracing to keep the posts square to the roof and ground.
The Bolt holes provide for gross adjustments in about 4 inch increments. By raising, lowering or rotating 1/4 turn you can align the two sets of perpendicular holes at various heights. The Screw has about 7 inches of threads which give the ability to fine tune the length within about a 6 inch range once the pole segments have been adjusted and bolted together. For my application, the adjustments worked perfectly.
Yes to a Point.
They are 5 x 4 inches. The bolt holes are slotted and are 3.5 x 2.25 on Center
Yes. I used them to replace the posts in my basement. Just don't exceed the weight limit of the post.
It would depend on the floor framing. If you are placing it where the floor framing is over or close to a wall underneath it or the framing is strong enough to not bow the ceiling underneath it down you would likely be ok. Without seeing your situation I couldn't say for sure but it sounds like an overkill even if the flooring will support the jack under the pressure used to push your ceiling brace back up. It sounds like regular 2x framing lumber would be more appropriate.
