You have the right to move anywhere. However, you cannot take the children with you. You cannot interfere with the father's visitation rights without seeking a modification of the custody and visitation orders that have been issued by the court. It will go more smoothly if the father will consent. However, he has the right to object and in that case the court will decide based on the best interest of the children.

I doubt you can move with your children without, at least, notice. Check your State law.

Here in Oklahoma, State law forbids the custodial parent from moving the custodial home more than 75 miles without giving sixty days advanced notice to all persons having any right to custody or visitation. If those persons do not object within 30 days, she can move the home. If they object, they can file a court action, including a motion for change of custody, which, in Oklahoma, everything else being even, is likely to be granted.

However, in New York, its not likely to be granted (e.g. I once saw a case where a women was allowed to move to California with her children to advance her career).

Generally, he can if he has joint legal custody. Otherwise he cannot and the school cannot release the child to him without your consent.Generally, he can if he has joint legal custody.

No, that would be a violation of the joint custody, and it could be reported to the police as a kidnapping.

It would depend on the distance of the move and state laws.
