No depreciation is not included as depreciation is allocation of part of assets cost to income statement while in capital budgeting, full cost of asset is already included so if depreciation will also be included then there would be double counting of same asset.

No. Depreciation would be considered an uncontrollable cost because it is fixed

Depreciation is a period cost and not a product cost as depreciation is still charged even if there is no production or sale of goods.

Depreciation on Capital Expenditure is nothing but Depreciation on fixed assets. Cash Flow statement shows the Capex incurred during the particular time period,i.e. for Quarter or fiscal year. A CAPEX is an amount spent to acquire or improve a long term asset such as plant,equipment or buildings. Usually the cost is recorded in an account classified as Property,plant and equipment.The cost (Except for the cost of LAND) will then be charged to depreciation expense over the useful life of the asset.

When you buy a plant or equipment, it will lose value over time - it's breaking down or it's not as efficient or the such; this gradual decline in worth of the capital is depreciation.

The depreciation deduction increases the amount of after tax cash (working capital) available to the business. The additional cash is equal to the amount of tax that would otherwise be payable on the depreciation claimed. This is because depreciation is an "unfunded" expense, but is really a tax deferral which is subject to recapture in the future.

Depreciation is a fixed cost because variable cost is that cost which change with the change in the production units but it doesn't put any effect on depreciation as depreciation of the equipment will remain same no matter you produce maximum number of units or produce no unit in fiscal year.

Depreciation of administrative equipment is period cost because if production is done or not those assets will be depreciated hence cost will be charged as period cost.
