Yes but only on the first move of each of the pawns

A pawn may move forward either one or two spaces when making the pawn's first move.

No, pawns can only attack diagonally and their first move being two spaces forward is not diagonal.

Each individual pawn can move two spaces on its first move

A pawn on the 2nd rank may move two spaces directly forward if the way is clear. Pawns do not jump.

10. Any of the 8 pawns or the 2 knights can be used for the first move. All the other pieces are trapped behind the pawns, and can't move first.

No

There are 20 possible first moves for each player. Some are certainly better than others. There are eight pawns, and on its first move a pawn can be moved either one or two spaces forward. That's 16 possible moves. In addition, each of the knights has two possible moves, and that accounts for the other 4 moves.

The only pieces that can make the first move in a chess game are the pawns and knights. Therefore, each side has 12 moves available. These are one possible for each of the eight pawns, and two each for both knights.

yes it can however can only move 1 space afterwards

Pawns in chess are unique from any other piece in that they move and attack in different directions. Pawns may move one or two spaces forward when on the 2nd or 7th rank (their starting positions for white and black respectively), and one space after that. They attack diagonally forward, either to the left or the right. This makes it possible to have multiple pawns on one file or vertical lines of squares. They cannot move backwards.

They can move 1 space(2 if it is the pawn's first move of the game)and they capture diagonally.
