Does the type of ball affect how well it spins in water?

The factors to consider here would be: 1) The surface texture of the ball, in other words, is it smooth or rough or dimpled like a Golf ball? Drag is produced by the water passing over the ball's surface. 2) The material making up the ball's surface can be attractive or repellent to water molecules. Presumably a ball with an oily surface would spin better though I've never experimented.

yes because a rough surface may slow the ball down and a smooth syrface may let it keep going. {it also depends on the type of ball}

Obeying the laws of physics, the speed of a tennis ball will increase with hard surfaces, such as cement, and decrease with soft surfaces, such as clay.

Yes. The viscosity, smoothness, slant, hardness and other factors of the surface would affect the distance a ball would travel. For example, a ball will travel much farther down a wet aluminum slide than up a sand dune.
