The rules for an onside kick are no different than for any other type of kickoff. On a kickoff, the kicking team can always take possession of the ball as long as it has traveled ten yards.

You might be confusing kickoffs with punts. On a punt, the kicking team can only down the ball unless the receiving team touches it first.

Yes but only if the ball is fumbled by the other team (the runner loses possession while running or touches the football but does not catch it).

you could, but the kicking technique of kicking a football on a stand and a soccer ball on the ground is different. in football you need to tilt your foot as far out as you can to get maximum distance, but in soccer if you kicked a hard ball as hard as you could like that you would probably break something. in soccer you need to make you foot curve around the ball for accuracy. you would have the power but not the right kicking technique.

What is the difference between a punt and kick-off?

A "punt" is when a team chooses to forfeit possession of the ball by kicking it downfield. It is a type of scrimmage kick, which means the ball is snapped from the line of scrimmage on a down play. A "kickoff" is when the ball is kicked to put it into play, either following a score or at the beginning of a half. This is a type of free kick, which does not take place on a scrimmage down. In order to legally punt, the ball must be dropped and then kicked before it touches the ground. To legally kickoff, the ball must be kicked off the ground before any players on the kicking team have moved beyond the line where the ball is placed.

How long is a field goal kick?

It depends on where it is kicked from. It would be the yardage from where the ball is snapped plus the additional 10 yards of the endzone plus seven yards (the typical yardage the holder sets behind the center). Therefore, if the fieldgoal is kicked from the 40 yard line, it would be considered a 57 yard fieldgoal. That's only six yards short of the NFL record of 63 yards, held by Saints kicker Tom Dempsey.
