Yes, the wizard(Gandalf) likes Bilbo very much. It is by the will of Gandalf that Bilbo comes along with the dwarves for the quest. His concern for Bilbo can be seen when all the dwarves come out from goblin's cave but Bilbo remains behind. Gandalf continues to visit Bilbo even after the end of dwarves quest.

In J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit", based on his bloodlines, Gandalf considers Bilbo Baggins to be more than just an ordinary Hobbit. He went with the feeling that Bilbo was also much braver than any other Hobbit, and at that point, decided Bilbo should accompany the dwarves.
Gandalf put the mark of a burglar on the front door of Bilbo's hobbit hole.
Because in the prelude to lord of the rings "the hobbit" Gandalf assisted Bilbo and thirteen dwarves steal a load of treasure from a dragon. Which the dragon stole from the dwarves a long time ago.

I think Gandalf came to Bilbo to either get a 14 man. (Another reply) Gandalf was helping the dwarves, and he believed that Bilbo could help. However, his help to the dwarves was secondary to his main mission: to get information about Sauron. Sauron is mentioned in the Hobbit, as the Necromancer; in the Lord of the Rings, Gandalf confirms that the "Necromancer" was no other than the old enemy, Sauron.
No, Gandalf never told the dwarves that Bilbo was a spy. He was a good friend of Bilbo's, and they trusted each other.
Gandalf called the eagles. The eagles are huge, and they bore the dwarves, Bilbo, and Gandalf safely away from the fire on their backs.
