I don't know any web sights off the top of my head. I find what I need to know in my books and charts. Go to a book store or library. Almost any beginner astronopmy book will answer 1, 2 & 4. You will also find the answer to much of the information to 3 in a beginner book. Skywatching by David Levy is really good. That book wil help with 5, 6 and I think 7 as well. He shows you lots of interesting stuff in each constillation.
Much of the technical stuff can be found in The Cambridge Star atlas or Burnums handbooks will have all that. They usually have all 3 of these books in the large books stores. If you don't want to leave your computer, I'd a earch for each topic. "Star Magnitude", "Mythology Leo" etc. Right on this sight you can get the maps of the constilations. They give you star names and stuff. Poke around, see what you can find, then come back and tell us what your still missing.
That's it;
