Is a sand filter system or a saltwater filter system for above ground pools?

Absolutely. Many people excacate and then place an above ground pool into the hole such that a foot or two stays above ground. Also make sure you either have clearance for your filter system or run the line into the ground and up to the filter as well.

That's quite possible. A filter, or filter change should do the trick.

That all depends on the size of the filter. It should say how many pounds of sand you need on the side of your sand filter.

It is usually seen as two words, but technically should be hyphenated as the adjective above-ground because ground is not an adjective by itself.

I haven't had an above ground pool for a while. Things might have changed. I recommend going with a filter that is rated higher than your needs. We actually used a lower-end model inground pool filter, because the stock one wouldn't keep the water clear.

To evenly distribute the water and mix the cold with the warm the pump should be on.

No, unless there is something wrong with the water that can't be handled by the filter and normal chemicals.

how often are you to change the cartridge in a pump for an above the ground pool

Technically, you don't backwash the pool, you backwash the filter. This is assuming you have a sand or DE filter. The filter valve should have a backwash setting. Turn off the pump, set the filter to backwash, and turn on the pump unitl the water runs reasonably clear.
