None. During an extra point attempt only the team attempting it can score any points. If the defensive team blocks the kick it becomes a dead ball. The above is true EXCEPT in college football.

If they fail, the try is over and the ball is kicked off as usual.

Has there ever been an NFL or college football game where a team only scored 1 point?

Although it is not possible to score only one point in an NFL game in college football it is possible to score only one point. It has never happened, but it would involve a return by the defense on a extra point attempt. If the defense made a return on a blocked kick, fumble, or interception (all dead plays in the NFL on an extra point conversion), fumbled the ball before scoring at the other end, and the offensive conversion team recovered it then went back into the end zone and was tackled, it would a one point safety for the defense.

If you block an extra point in the NFL and return it will you get any points?

You do not get extra points for blocking an extra point attempt. Points in football can only be scored by action in the end zone. First, the above answer is incorrect, as points scored by kicking the ball through the uprights do not involve "action in the end zone." Second, in college football you ARE awarded two points if the defense blocks an extra point and returns it all the way across the opposing goal line in one play. But in high school or the NFL, blocked PATs are immediately ruled dead.

What is the award of points called for returning a blocked point after touchdown attempt in the NFL?

You cannot return a blocked P.A.T. in the NFL. The play is blown dead as soon as the defense gains possession of the ball. This is also the rule in high school. In college, however, a blocked P.A.T. can be returned by the defense for two points, assuming they run it all the way back in one play. (If they fail to run it back, the try is over. Then the ball is kicked off by the scoring team as usual.) The award of points would typically be called "Conversion: blocked PAT return" or something similar, depending on the preferred format of the box score.

It depends on the league and level of football, but in the NFL, the football is normally placed on the 2 yard line for both a point-after kick or a 2-point conversion attempt. In high school, it's placed on the 3 yard line. CFL rules put it on the 5 yard line.

Does a touchdown extra point have to be attempted with no time left?

In the NFL, yes. I've seen games where a team scored a go-ahead touchdown and won with no time remaining, and both teams left the field, but the officials made them return to attempt the extra point. Other leagues or levels of football may make the PAT optional in this case, but the NFL requires it. I think the rationale is that the point could make a difference in tiebreakers at the end of the season.
