If a football is on the 25 and 2nd down and six teams attempt a field goal wide right who would end up with the ball?

The team that was on defense when the kick was made. Anytime a ball is kicked it causes a change of possesion unless there was a defensive penalty. -----The rules in the NFL state that once the ball crosses the line of scrimmage on a missed field goal attempt there is a change of possession except in the case of a defensive penalty. The kicking team would obviously accept the penalty which would negate the previous play which was the failed kick.

If one pro football team roughs the punter after he kicks does the punter's team get the ball for a 1st and 10?

Yes. There are two penalties that can be called in a situation where a punter gets hit after punting the ball. One is a 'running into the punter' penalty which is five yards and not an automatic first down. The other is 'roughing the punter' which is fifteen yards and an automatic first down. The referee makes the decision whether the penalty is running into or roughing. Generally, roughing the punter is called when the punter's kicking leg is still in the air when heavy contact is made. If both the punter's feet are on the ground when contact is made or the contact is very slight, running into the punter is called. If the defensive player makes contact with the punter because of being blocked by an offensive player, no penalty is called.
