Yes, the diameter of a black hole is finite. And the circumference, or more of just outside of the circumference, is known as the event horizon. This is the "point of no return" and once you get passed this point there is no escape.

Well, there are two kinds of black holes. The normal black holes and the supermassive black holes. The supermassive black holes are a billion times bigger then our sun, while normal black holes are the same size as the Earth.

According to leading theories, black holes may have any size, ranging from the subatomic to black holes many times the size of our Sun.

there is no exact answer, different black holes have different speeds, but all black holes can crush 1 tonne of metal into a size of a pebble

Except for supemassive black holes, no. Most black holes have about the same mass as a star, but the event horizon is only a few miles across.
