The court does not allow a minor child to arbitrarily change residency from one custodial parent to another unless there is a court order allowing the action. The parent wishing to take custody of the child must file a petition for such in the appropriate state court in the city or county where they or in some cases the child resides.
The biological child.

Yes, but he can file an injunction to stop it.
Only if the child is named in the deceased's Will. He or she would not be entitled to an inheritance by way of state probate succession laws.
A DNA test can prove if the biological father is actually the father. If it is proven he is the father, then he should have all parental rights as any other parent.
He can be sued by the child's mother or other guardian, and/or by the State.
Marriage by itself does not bring custody rights to non-biological children. Where the children go when the biological mother dies depends on who has custody, whether the non-biological father has adopted the child, whether the biological father wants the child, and on the laws of the state where all of this is happening.
No. It's always the biological parents who first has the obligation to support their child, not the state.
The court decides and no.
No, that would be fraud. Unless you are the husband of the mother, by state law, that automatically makes you the father. In that case, the biological father may have to go to court and prove paternity before changing the name.
