Top of the line skis for one week is around €100.
There's usually not much use for oil with skis. Modern skis are mainly plastic, and oil won't do much for them. Older wodden skis are/were traditionally treated with tar as a sort of base preparation to keep the snow from sticking to them.
They looked very much like the skis we use today.
A one week rental (6 days) is starting at € 60 for a pair of beginners skis and up to €120 for advanced skis.

You wax your skis so that you don't stumble on the snow and you just glide over it for a smooth ride! Also, waxing your skis enables you to ski faster and it protects the bases of your skis, which if damaged can cause a rougher ride and can make the skis harder to control (trust me, I had skis with damaged bases and once they were repaired they were SO much easier to control).
skis sold without bindings are flat skis
Not much, except the ski wax and the skis.

Not much. They are very dated and don't have much of a collectors value.
I go skiing on a pro level, so I have the newest and most expensive equipment, and I paid $800 for my last skis. But of course, you don't need so expensive skis if you're just a regular sunday-skier.
Twin tip skis are for the experienced skier. they tend to be much easier to use. also they help you control your movements better while on the water. Skis are meant for fun.
Mine weigh 9kg inc bindings
Weight is distributed over a larger area, so the skis tend not to sink into the snow as much as wheels would. If and when the skis do 'sink' (into powder, for example) their design makes it easier to guide them toward the surface of the snow. Also, the longer the skis, the faster you can travel on them.
Nope it is the ability of the skier. Not the skis. But fiberglass skis are probably lighter. But i dont think they would preform as good as skis with a normal base.
Here are some skis.
