Interestingly, the constitution doesn't say a lot about how to become a state. It does say "New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union," and it also says that a new state may not be created out of the territory of an existing state, nor can two or more states be merged into one, unless both the Congress and all the state legislatures involved agree to it. A state must have its own constitution, but it must also agree to accept the authority of the US Constitution. Today, if a new territory wants to join the United States, it must express its desire for statehood to Congress, and it is up to Congress whether to approve it or not.

Yes. The President must deliver to Congress a "State of the Union" periodically. There is nothing that specifies it must be a speech to Congress.

The Constitution is vague and just says the following: "He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient"
