In the NFL, after a touchdown the ball is placed on the two yard line. In college, the ball is placed at the three yard line. So it's a 19 yard kick in the NFL, 20 yard kick in College.

10 yards for the length of the endzone + 7 yards that the kicker and holder are set up behind the line of scrimmage + 2 yards, for the ball being placed on the 2 yard line(or 3 for college.

After a touchdown in the NFL the ball is placed at the two yard line for the conversion. Generally, when teams make a place kick, the holder kneels down 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage. That would mean the ball would be held for the kicker about 19 yards from the goal posts.

One point. The team also has an option to do a play after they score a touchdown, which is called a two point conversion. In this the team can run one pay in an effort to score two points instead of one point by kicking it through the uprights (the yellow poles in the endzone).

So yes,

Kick after touchdown, One point

Two point conversion, Two points

Why is there six points in a touchdown instead of ten points in a touchdown?

That's just the way the point system evolved. A touchdown is harder to get than a field goal, so you get twice as many points for a TD, plus you get a chance to tack on a bonus point afterward. The original scoring system was 2 points for a TD, 4 points for the point after, 5 points for a field goal, and 2 points for a safety. That reflected the emphasis on kicking in the early days. But as the game moved more toward running and passing, the point system changed to reflect the value of a touchdown over a kicked score.

How many points is a field goal worth in football?

3 points. But a drop kick (which is similar to a field goal) is worth 2 points. A drop kick is where you drop the ball on the ground and let it bounce up in the air then kick it through the goal posts. This is very difficult to do and is very rarely tried in the nfl.
