Pious servants of Allah are granted gifts from Allah including intercession for believers. These gifts from Allah (SWT) depends in the degree of that servant in front of Allah. We don't talk to the grave but to the pious servant of Allah who is granted an everlasting life as we read in Quran ( Don't think those who were killed in the way of Allah as dead, nay, there are alive but you do not feel)( Sura 3, verse 169).

'Every believer who dies with the love of Ahlul Bayt, die as a Shaheed. This is according to authentic Hadeeths in Shia and Sunni books including Tafseer of Zamajhshari and Tafseer Al-Fakhr Al-Raazi and many other Sunni books.

Yes. They know when we visit their graves and feel happy because of our visiting their graves and reciting Quran and praying for them. They hear us when we talk to them. The Hadeeth says: Talk to the dead people in their graves and raise your voice talking to them and tell them: You went before us and we are following you soon. يا أهل الديار من المؤمنين والمسلمين، أنتم لنا فَرَطٌ وإنّا بِكُم إن شاء الله وشيكاً لاحِقون

It is highly recommended to say when you visit the graves of the Muslims: Peace upon you, O people of Laa Ilaaha Illallah السلام عليكم يا أهل لا إله إلا الله.

How did find Laa Ilaaha Illallah كيفَ وَجَدتُم قَولَ لا إلهَ إلّا الله

Allah is The Most Merciful Who showers His Mercy on us all the times. He wants us to avoid sinful acts and never insist on wrong, so that He forgives our sins when we sincerely repent and seek forgiveness. Sinners who insist on doing wrong and never care to repent, will face the results of their own deeds. Allah's Mercy does not allow punishment for sins we have repented, nor repeating a punishment which has already been given.

The Mercy and Forgiveness of Allah, is above our imagination. His Mercy and Forgiveness will be on The Day of Judgement for almost every one except the enemies of Allah, the Prophet and Ahlul Bayt. Enemies of Allah will be facing the results of their crimes in their graves and in the Day of Judgement as well, but sinners who are not enemies of Allah will not suffer twice. Grave for some believers is a place of purification so they suffer in the grave to go pure in The Day of Judgement.
We need to have more hope in Allah's Mercy and keep ourselves away from sins and seek forgiveness.

Yes of course. Ziyarat Ashura is a great Ziyarat and it is recommended to recite it every day. Reciting it on behalf of a deceased will make the deceased get great reward as well as the reciter himself.

Wassalam.
