Jumu'ah

Jumu'ah (Arabic: صلاة الجمعة‎, ṣalāt al-jumu‘ah), also known as Friday Prayer or Congregational Prayer, is a prayer (ṣalāt) that Muslims hold every Friday, just after noon instead of the Zuhr prayer. Muslims ordinarily pray five times each day according to the sun's sky path regardless of time zones.

Thank you for your question. In the period of occultation, most jurists in the modern period have ruled that a person has a choice whether to pray jummah or zuhr on a Friday. Jummah is better but zuhr is also sufficient for a person go have fulfilled their obligations.

May you always be successful

Sermon of Jum'ah was always given by the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) before the two Rak'ats of Jum'ah Prayer. 
Mo'awiyah and Uthman before him tried changing it.
In the well known Sunni book Morooj Al-Thahab مروج الذهب (2:72) that Mo'awiyah prayed Jum'ah prayer on Wednesday when he returned from Siffeen.

Wassalam.

It is narrated from the Prophet (SAWA): Who resides Sura Al-Kahf on Friday, will be granted forgiveness till next Friday and three more days and will granted Noor (light) which reaches the sky. (Majma' al-Bayan by al-Tabrasi, Volume 3, Page 447).

It is also narrated from Imam Zainul Aabideen Al-Sajjad (AS):  Who recites Sura Al-Kahf every eve of Friday ( Laylatul Jum'ah) will never die but as a martyr and will be in the day of Judgment with the martyrs. ( A'lam al-Deen by al-Daylami, page 371).

Similar meaning was narrated from Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS) in Majma' Al-Bayan 3:447.

According to the verdict of many high caliber scholars, joining the Jum'a Prayer is enough even if you are late and could not listen to the both Khutba of Jum'a.

You do not need to perform Dhuhr.

It is recommended to pray with Muslims from any sect. As it is a Friday prayer, you need to pray your own Dhuhr prayer before or after it.

Praying with our Muslim brothers from any sect is highly recommended.

Engaging in haram acts does not mean one abandons their devotion to Allah ta'ala and their 'ibadah. 

Indeed, it is even more important to stress on that, for the purpose of hopefully empowering oneself to become more obedient to God and stay away from sin. 

Yes, this man should continue to pray, fast, and perform everything else required by him as a Muslim. If done in the correct way, they will also be valid as well. 

With prayers for your success.

Yes, we are allowed to pray at home especially when the Mosque is closed. Friday prayer has its conditions where ever it was established e.g. minimum number of participant is five, and the Imam of Jum'ah must be 'Adil (pious believer who does not commit sins) and other conditions.

According to the view of our esteemed jurists, attending Salat al-Jumu'ah (Friday Prayer) is not wajib, but only Mustahab, and you are able to either attend, or pray your Dhuhr and 'Asr at home. You have this option to choose. 

Of course, it is always recommended to pray in the form of jama'ah, or congregation, so it is encouraged to try to pray your wajib prayers in jama'ah in any opportunity you have. 

With prayers for your success.

Thank you for your question. Not performing Jummah prayers for a lengthy period of time does not take someone out of the fold of Islam according to the School of Ahl al-Bayt (as). It is possible to pray Jummah at home if a person ensures that all of the conditions of Jummah are fulfilled. For the conditions of Jummah prayer please refer to the book of Islamic laws of your Marja.

It is highly recommended for every Shia Muslim to pray with Muslims from other sects in their congregational prayers, but we need to recite Sura Al-Hamd and other Sura for ourself. Such Salaah will be valid if it was performed inside the time not before it.
Jum'a prayers with non Shia Muslims is good but we need to recite Dhuhr Prayer as well.

If you proceed to Rukoo' before the Imam of Jama'ah or Jum'ah thinking that he is in Rukoo', you need to stand back and return to Rukoo' then follow the Imam. Your Salaah will be valid.
