Depends on which one you buy, how deep the tank is, how large the stones are, etc. The pumps have a certain number of ports to help keep people from putting too many air stones, etc. on them at a time, but depending on your situation you can add to or might need to decrease what you have attached to the pump.

You can purchase and use what they call gang valves. This will split the airflow into multiple lines. How many can you use? This depends on the size/depth of the aquariums that you are trying to use the air stones in. I would just experiment with it. The more air stones you use the less airflow you will get to each of the stones. The airflow can be adjusted through the gang valves to each line. Experiment with multiple lines, use a gang valve and see whether or not you are getting the flow of bubbles/air that you want.

Everything you need is included. You can buy different air stones and more airline tubing if you need it. The stones are basic, but they work fine. The tubing is actually pretty nice.

What size? Long, probably, Tall, probably not. I think it would be smarter for you to buy the largest size for a 10 bucks more.

you attach the airstone to one end of the tubing, the machine's nozzle to the other, put the airstone in the tank and turn it on. Either put the pump above water level, or put a check valve in the tubing. Check valves can be attached by cutting the airline tubing and attaching it on either side of the check valve. This prevents water from entering the pump if the power goes out and water gets in the tubing
