If the custodial parent is on SSI disability are the benefits considered a source of income when determining child support in Indiana?

The custodial parent (the one who has the child/children) is receiving SSI that is not included in the decision of the amount of support paid by the non custodial parent.

How is child support determined if you support your kids with no government assistance but the mother gets government assistance?

In general, child support is a percentage of the obligor's net income. Whether or not the other parent/child receives public assistance is not relevant to this calculation. If the amount of support received is less than the public assistance grant, the State will retain the child support as reimbursement. If support exceeds the grant, the grant will be discontinued and the support will be forwarded to the other parent.

Child support is the non-custodial parent's portion of the expenses of the child, including housing, food, clothing and so on. It is up to the custodial parent whether an "allowance" can be paid to the child from the child support amount.

Does the non-custodial parent need to have insurance on the child when paying child support in Texas?

Yes, if it is so ordered in the child support agreement. If the parent loses their insurance and the custodial parent has the ability to insure the child - it will be possible for the state to order the custodial parent to do so. This may change the amount of support the non custodial parent pays - it is entirely up to the whim of the courts.
