Many players where soccer boots however, rugby "boots" have a higher ankle area to protect that area when rucking or be rucked over. The term "Rugby boot" actually refers to the earliest foot-ware which were in fact working boots. the studs were small studs which were used to reduce wear on the sole on the boot. These were worn by the players who came from industry especially heavy industry and coal mining.
it can have 6 or more studs
Cleats are normally plastic and moulded to the boot sole there are normally 6 to 8 depending on the make of the boot. The normal rugby boot will have aluminium studs which screw in for replacement and these boots carry 6 to 10 studs
They are the same - most football boot / rugby boots have the same foot sizes - However, there are some rugby boots that sit higher in the ankle than football boots to protect the ankle from stud damage. Added to this many newer Rugby boot makes carry a 10 stud configuration (6 in the sole 4 in the heel) for great grip for the push factor they also have studs all the same length as the heel studs for the same reason
Normally 6, 4 at the front and 2 at the heal
6 sole 2 heal. Most forward s use all heal studs (longest allowed) as this allows for geater grip
In the heel. However, many players use the same size for heel and sole
Some in the Adidas F50 range have metal studs. Also the Adidas World Cup boots come with metal studs as standard. Others include the Adidas adipure 11 Pro, Nike Men's Tiempo Legend IV, Adidas adiPure IV X-TRX, Asics Lethal Tigreor 4 ST, and many others. Metallic studs are primarily used for SG (soft ground) soccer/football but may not be legal in all leagues. Always best to check with your league. Replacement spikes (plastic or nylon) are available and are easily switched with the appropriate cleat key/wrench.
Points? You mean on the outsole? If so, it varies between different football boots. Some may have a lot(copa mundial), or have a few metal studs.

You can safely wear firm or hard ground boots on Artifical Grass playing surfaces, as I have done for many years. However, alot of people call all artificial grounds astro turf which is misguided. The carpet type surface is not good for studded boots, and you should only wear astroturf boots (the kind with many tiny rubber studs) on these grounds. If the ground is artificial but with blades of artificial 'grass' you can wear these boots no problem, n fact, you SHOULD wear those boots. Have a good game.
