That unit was made in the 1970s. There are going to be lots of things that are wrong just due to age. There are pinch rollers on the capstan, there are belts and pulleys and the rubber on these is most likey degraded and lost. There are electronic parts called capacitors that have dried out and are now bad. i admire your willingness to work on this unit but it is going to be hard to get parts for it.

If you have played it loud, you may have blown the woofer.

Yes, for most movies the surround speakers are for music and background. Unless the person speaking is supposed to be behind you, the voice will not come from there.

There probably is a leaf switch under the turntable that is operated by mechanical movement of the tonearm. The switch has to be adjusted/repaired/replaced to regain the function.

A stylus (needle) as associated with the type of cartridge fitted rather than a turntable or hifi brand.

You will need the brand and model of the cartridge and/or the original stylus as some suppliers provide detailed pictures to identify the correct type.
When you have identified the correct type you could be faced with a further choice of sapphire or diamond type and if the tone arm is S shaped whether you prefer a conical or an elliptical type.

While you are shopping you should also obtain a small spirit level to ensure the turntable is level (a small circular level is best) and a stylus balance to ensure the correct playing weight...

The only way I know off is to unplug it. Standby simply tells you it is plugged in.

Greetings. Common causes for this are: (1) Bad connections on audio signal cable. If analogue, spray the plugs and sockets with contact cleaner. (2) CD laser assembly is intermittently failing to read the data.This can be caused by a dirty laser (clean with a laser cleaning CD which has a small rubber piece glued to the surface. Or it is most likely caused by a dirty CD. Clean the CD thoroughly, with warm soapy water (soapy water is the natural solvent for dirt) and then clean with a volatile solvent spray that leaves no residue such as Contact Cleaner made by WD40 for example. (3) An intermittent electronic or disk alignment problem which you can not fix yourself unless you have the appropriate expertise.
Cheers, Don.

This is the audio equivalent of video pixilation. It is caused by interruptions of the signal stream in the digital audio circuitry. And yes, it is hard if not impossible to diagnose. It is easier/cheaper to replace the failed unit than fixing it.

If your receiver has a subwoofer output, then it is simple. run an RCA cable from the subwoofer out on the receiver to the input on the powered subwoofer. If the subwoofer out is only a single plug then you can use a Y adapter. But, most powered subwoofers will work with only one side plugged in. Try that and if it's not working right.. then get the Y adapter.
