Yes. Air resistance acts against the part of the boat that's above the water

line, and water resistance acts on the part of the boat that's below it.

Yes. It's called wind resistance, or air resistance, or air drag. Items with little drag are said to be streamlined.

Yes, air resistance acts in the opposite direction as an object in motion. (It's air resistance.) In aeronautical terms, we call it drag. Generally, air resistance refers to the effects created on an object moving through it that in some way work to "limit" the object's motion. The air is "just there" and the movement of an object through it sets up the conditions to create air resistance.

Once it is in the air, the main forces are gravity, and air resistance.

Air resistance is a collection of particles in the air such as oxygen, nitrogen, and even dead skin cells. Air resistance can also be seen as a type of friction in the air. Just as a ball can be rolled and slowed down by a direct frictional force with the ground, when you throw a ball, the air particles act in the opposite direction of the ball.

The forces acting on a falling body are gravity and air resistance.

Air resistance is a type of friction, and so it will always slow an object in comparison to if there never was air resistance.
