Thank you for asking. The method considers mutations in haplotypes of
haplogroup A (as well as of other haplogroups). The depth of "digging"
depends on a number of available haplotypes. The more haplotypes are
available (and they are coming in pretty fast), the better the chance to
find more "ancient" among them (that is ones with more mutations),
therefore, to move "deeper" in time. The method is described in
I hope you understand better now.

Possibly. What is that impossible about it? The system is rather
complicated, there are many possible scenarios, including the one described
above. That is why considering only SNPs leaves too many degrees of freedom.
You have to learn considering haplotypes, not just the SNPs. Then you might

This is fine, I have explained it earlier.

Of course. I also have explained it before. Haplogroup/subclade A2 is in one
tooth of the fork, haplogroup B in the another one, along with BT. That is
why haplogroups A and B are VERY distant from each other with their
haplotypes. Haplogroup B could not possibly descend from A. I have
explained it to you earlier.
Again, remember about the fork.
