It's a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles making up the nebula.

If you were hoping for an answer like "50 degrees" ... they don't work that way; they can have any temperature.

A planetary nebula is created by a dying low to medium mass star as it sheds its outer layers of gas.

Yes.There is the Life-Cycle of Stars. The first stage is stellar nebula. Much later in the cycle is the planetary nebula; after the Red Giant, and before the White Dwarf.

Depends entirely on the planetary nebula. A ball park figure would be around 50% of the mass of the progenitor star.

Yes. There are many planetary nebulae in our galaxy.

The galaxis are bigger than planetary nebulae, that are bigger than planetary systems.

A nebula is a large cloud of gas in space, a planetary nebula is the large cloud of expanding superheated gas caused by the explosion of a red giant or other very large, very hot star. Neither have anything to do with planets.

We have a candidate. The star at the center of the planetary nebula NGC 2440 has a surface temperature on the order of 200,000 °K.
