When did Italy surrender to Germany?
Italy joined Germany as an ally before the war began. When the Allies invaded Sicily in July 1943, an island that belongs to Italy, the people decided to over-throw Mussolini and join the Allies. The Allies would not let Italy become an ally; instead they had to surrender on 8 Sept 1943. When they made this decision, Germany sent more troops into Italy to occupy it. So the area not liberated by the Allies was under the German domination. But Italy never surrendered to Germany.

Did Germany and Italy become allies with Japan before or after World War 2?
It depends on how you look at it. Germany and Italy were already allied with each other and fighting in the war when they were joined by Japan, although Japan waited until late '41 to take an active role in the war. After the war, Italy, Japan, and West Germany became allies against East Germany, but they had little choice in this matter. Japan and Italy were also allies in World War 1, but against Germany then.
