Several moderate Republicans voted for a verdict of not guilty because they did not believe a president should be removed from office for political differences thus, as a result Johnson stayed in office until the end of his term in March 1869.
The Senate voted to acquit President Johnson of the charges against him; therefore he was not removed as president. The vote for acquittal passed by only one vote.
In 1868, the Radical Republicans faction attempted to have President Andrew Johnson impeached for vetoing Reconstruction laws passed by Congress. He avoided impeachment by a single vote.

Yes. If a president is belived to have committed crimes, articles of impeachment based on the alleged crimes may be drawn up in the House of Representatives. The president is then tried on those charges in the Senate. If he is found guilty by a 2/3 majority vote, then he is removed from office.

Articles were drawn up for Richard Nixon as well, but he resigned before impeachment could procede.
