Traditionally, it would be the same weight for all 3 sets. Something that lets you get more than 5 reps, but less than 9 reps. But, different programs may have you doing something else.
Generally, yes. Also, the bar is placed higher on the traps, as opposed to lower across the shoulders.
Again, “tradition” would say yes. Odds are if you can get 10 reps with a given weight, something specific would have to happen to allow you to only get 6 reps with the same weight after 2 sets (again, unless you’re on a specifc program like some variation of density training).
I generally prefer overhead pressing done standing. You’ll be using more ab/core/stabilizers when standing. As for the “other” DB, I usually don’t use it, but I’ve seen it done. Doing so might help to prevent you from leaning away, as in a side press. I wouldn’t call either method “wrong”.
Nope. GHRs are tricky to recreate anywhere except an actual GHR machine. You could do a search here for “Natural Glute Ham Raise” to find some ways to do them without the machine. But that’s just going to be an “okay” substitute.
