Snowboard boots provide much more support than a regular boot. Just by looking at a snowboard boot, you can see how much thicker the materials are as well as how much bulkier they appear to be in comparison to a traditional boot. It also comes much higher up the leg than a normal boot. The reason being is that not on does a snowboard boot have to keep you warm, but it also has to transfer energy effectively from you to the snowboard through the snowboard bindings. Therefore, a regular boot is just too flimsy to achieve the same energy transfer. Wearing a regular boot Snowboarding is like asking for an ankle injury as well as a poor snowboarding experience.

Unfortunately there is not an easy answer for this, as it depends on a few different aspects.

A tight fit boot will give you a more responsive ride, if combined with a tight binding, but it will make it harder to move about within the boot. It will reduce the strain on your legs while riding if you are riding a lot every day as well, as your boots will absorb some of the force going through your legs.

A loose boot will give you a less responsive ride, which can lead to edge catching if you aren't used to your board's response. It will however, give you more flexibility when it comes to grabbing and buttering, and will make it easier to flex your knees and ankles. Looser boots also give you a wider margin for error on rails.

The next issue is one of comfort, because you don't want to be in pain while riding, so it is important that you try the boot if at all possible, as it will make you a lot happier.

Another important aspect is the lacing system. A lot of different companies have a novel take on the binding system, such as a ratchet that tightens the boot or different laces for different sections of the boot. It's important to remember that the more fancy a system is, the harder it will be to replace a lace when one breaks (which they do). I have found that boots with a totally normal lace are fine, though over a long day of riding they will require readjusting as sweat and movement will loosen the upper laces.

The final tip I have is to buy a size too small for you, as the inner liners of boots are malleable, and will loosen due to sweat and movement, so the boots will stay tighter for longer if you buy a slightly smaller size.

Well mostly because it's fun and challenging. Originally it was invented to get across large snowdrifts without falling through for much faster travel.

You need to wax your snowboard because it reduces friction and lets your snowboard slide better. Its also reduces wear and tear from day to day use.

yes special boots are required.

they differ from ski boots as they are not made from the rigid plastic but from a more flexible setup. The costs are often from £100 (gbp) and up.

They are roughly the same size. It's really more dependent on your shoe size and what type of boot you get. Ski boots are harder (and, in my opinion, less comfortable), whereas snowboarding boots look and feel more like normal boots.
