Depends on what you mean by "you." I'll assume that you mean either a ball you have just hit, or yourself.

If the ball touches the net on a serve, and bounces over the net landing in-bounds, then it is called a let, and acts just like a redo. If the ball hits the net and falls back on your side, then it is a fault and you loose the point.

Any other time, the ball is allowed to hit the net.

If you touch the net yourself (either with your racquet, clothes, body, hair) before the ball has bounced twice on the opponent's court then you loose the point.

Yes. The occasion which allows a tennis player to reach over the net to contact a tennis ball is when backspin, or blowing wind, causes a ball to go back across the net, after it has bounced within the bounds of your court.

when you serve the ball over the net it is allowed to hit the top of the net or skim it as long as it can get to the other side without the help of your teamates

In tennis a ball is hit and backspins into your court without the opponent touching the ball Who's point is it?

You are the winner of that point. If you hit the ball over to your opponent's side, but the ball bounces back over to your side for some reason, you are the winner of that point. However, if this happens, your opponent can reach over the net and slam it into the net to win the point. Normally, you are not allowed to reach over the net, but under these circumstances, you can reach over the net to hit the ball.
