Some see it as representing Irish culture which they do not want to be part of, mainly in Northern Ireland. However, many Protestants do play GAA and there has even been a President of the GAA who was a Protestant. Also, the Sam Maguire trophy, the most important trophy in Gaelic Football is named after a Protestant. He was very much involved in the GAA.
You cannot play GAA. The GAA is an organisation, not a sport. It governs a number of sports including Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie, Handball and Rounders. The rules of those sports are all different.

No, for lots of reasons. Players play for the love of the sport and of their friends and community. That is a far greater driving force to play than for money. Professionalism would ruin the whole heart and spirit of the game. The GAA is the largest amateur sporting organisation in the world, so it would not be possible to pay everyone should it become professional. Most people do not want it to be professional. Many players are professional in that they already have jobs and careers and very few would want to play sport professionally. For these and other reasons, the GAA should stay amateur.

The GAA itself does not have a chairman. The various county boards and provincial councils have them. At the top level there is a GAA president and a GAA Director General.
Camogie is part of GAA.
All the GAA sports are amateur, so the players do not get paid to play. Many of them have jobs and get paid through those, or may be studying or unemployed.
Anywhere there is an Irish community there are possibly some GAA clubs. If you check the North American GAA website, then you may get more information for your area.
