Yes, you need one to drive even a small school bus.

GVWR, A for combination vehicles over 26,000 lbs. GVWR in which the vehicle in tow has a weight rating of greater than 10,000 lbs) with a passenger endorsement. In the case of a school bus, you must have an "S" endorsement, as well, which is essentially a passenger endorsement with the added requirement of a criminal background check.

No. A Class B CDL is required for vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of more than 26,000 lbs., and which may tow a trailer with a weight rating of up to 10,000 lbs.

Yes. The GMC Envoy comes equipped from factory with a standard tow pkg. They are rated to pull around 5500 lbs. Depending on rear axle ratio 3.42 maybe a little less or 4.10 a little more. Most came with 3.42 or 3.73 rear axles, so 5000-5500 lbs. is a safe bet. You will need to get a trailer brake controller installed in your Envoy if you are pulling more than 4000 lbs.

Look in your owner's manual for the tow rating for your vehicle and compare to the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of the trailer you want to tow. Off hand I would say you should be able to, as most passenger cars can tow at least 1,000 lbs, and the 4x8 trailers such as from Harbor Freight (not heavy duty) have a GVWR of about 1,000 lbs. But again, to be certain, check your owner's manual.
