Kinda-sorta. If you have two wheels of different size, but both spinning at the same rate - then the circumference of the bigger wheel will be going faster than the circumference of the smaller wheel.

But at the same time the bigger wheel will be heavier to turn, so it will take more power to keep it spinning. If you haven't got that extra power there's no speed to be gained.

The bigger the wheel, the bigger the circumference. The bigger the circumference, the longer it'll travel in one rotation.

In general, no.

Orbital speed = (circumference of the orbit) / (period of revolution)

That will obviously depend on the speed. Assume some convenient speed, then divide the circumference (which is about 40,000 kilometers) by that speed. If the circumference is in kilometers, and the speed in kilometers/hour, the time will be in hours.

The wheel size does affect its speed.

Distance and time do not, in general, affect the speed. Speed, however, can affect distance or time. Distance is directly proportional to speed, time is inversely proportional.
