The answer to How much pro Soccer referees make is in the MLS Referee Handbook.
In MLS the Referee's and Assistant Referees' game fee is decided by the amount of past MLS experience each official has. Referees and Assistant Referees are ranked in catagories of level 1 2 3 or 4
For regular season MLS games here are the Referee's Game Fees
Level 4 = $850
Level 3 = $750
Level 2 = $650
Level 1 = $550
Assistant Referees' Game Fees
Level 4 (76+ previous MLS games assigned as of 3/15/08) = $475
Level 3 (41-75 previous MLS games assigned as of 3/15/08) = $350
Level 2 (21-40 previous MLS games assigned as of 3/15/08) = $300
Level 1 (0-20 previous MLS games assigned as of 3/15/08) = $250

With soccer there are a number of things you can do. You could be a player on the team, a referee, or even a coach. I have refereed for a while and you can make some good money.
Like any referee, they make sure the game is being played by the rules. They are the judges as to whether or not a play is fair, and who gets the ball after it goes out of bounds.
It usually depends on the soccer league you are reffing for, but most of the time you have to be in high school. The age limit is 10. this is to referee a u-8 game. Also you must pass the certification exam. Well, in my town you can be 10 to referee a soccer game. I am 10 and I can referee in Wisconsin.
In general, referees are not paid differently because they speak two or more languages.
No, but they do make the recommendation(s) to league commissioners, and/or the governing bodies who then make the ultimate decision(s).
Nothing. Entry-level is usually volunteering for lower grade club or school leagues.
The question is not how, but why. You'd be better off just starting your own team. The American soccer pyramid is already set according to the US Soccer Federation, and that's the body you get into FIFA through. MLS is Division 1, the North American Soccer League is division 2, and United Soccer Leagues USLpro is Division 3. Everything else is going to be amateur soccer at best. United Soccer League operates a number of amateur divisions , a women's league and youth developmental soccer. That's probably your best bet.
Yes, it is possible.
