Do longboard wheels work on a skateboard?

Longboard wheels have a small hub, or core, inside it. Skateboard wheels also have this. This allows you to put bearings inside of both of them and can interchange what trucks you put on it. Generally, longboard wheels fit on normal skateboard trucks but a problem you will encounter is wheelbite. You may need to sand the board for wheel wells or put big risers on your board. Another solution is buying harder bushings for less turn and lean.

Why do some bikes have smaller wheels?

As pretty much all bicycle wheels are equally wide at the hub, a smaller wheel is stronger than a bigger wheel. OTOH bigger wheels tend to roll better, particularly at uneven surfaces. Then again, smaller wheels tend to be lighter, and get up to speed faster than a bigger wheel. So basically it's about adapting the bike to the kind of riding you're about to do. If you're gonna trash the bike about, small wheels are a good thing. If you want nippy acceleration, small wheels are a good thing. If you want speed under good riding conditions, big wheels will help with that. Then there are rules. Some competitions will only allow bikes in a certain configuration. Even if you'd might be able to put smaller wheels to good use, you're not allowed to use them.

Do smaller wheels with bigger gears go faster than cars with big wheels and small gears?

It's not clear what you mean with big/small gears. But remember that the size of the wheel and the ratio of the gears interact. Basically if you have two cars with the same engine/gear box, stick one in 1st gear with huge wheels and the other in 2nd gear with small wheels there's a good chance they end going equally fast.
