That depends on the amount of bio material in the water. A test it available from pool shops will aid you in determining this.

No. Swimming Pools contain water with chlorine

Salt water pools are really saline pools. The salt content is much less than natural sea water. You can barely taste the salt in the pool. Chlorine pools hurt your eyes , while salt water pools do not.

Not at the recommended level. If to much is used you may feel sleepy. Chlorine is very dangerous it leaves the water as chlorine gas which can kill you in high enough doses. Always ensure proper ventilation with indoor pools.

You put chlorine in pools, to kill bugs and to stop mosquitoes from laying eggs in the water.

Shocking should be done in order to kill the chloramines. It depends on your chlorine level. For residential pools it should be 1.5-2.5ppm. For commercial, chlorine should be 3.5-4.5ppm. If you have just shocked, don't go in the water. The chlorine is probably 10-12ppm and will cause itching and burning. Wait until the level drops to a safe level, as stated above.
