Yes. That is what business is. You buy something from someone at one price and you sell it to another person at...hopefully ...a MUCH HIGHER PRICE.

Look around and see if you can find a copy of How to Create Fund and Start Your Own Business. You can probably find a used copy cheap..it has been around awhile.

You can try. It's legal.

Of course. That's basically what all retailers do. They buy from a supplier and sell to a customer.

Sure, happens all the time. So long as you pay taxes on the profits and follow all the laws this is perfectly fine.
