A snake sticks out its tongue to collect data for its Jacobson's Organ, an organ strategically located in front of the roof of the snake's mouth that functions as a chemical receptor. Each and every time the snake flicks out its forked tongue, it snares chemical particles in the air, which latch onto, or dissolve in, the moisture of the snake's tongue. Once the snake reels in its tongue, it inserts the tips of the forked tongue into the two awaiting openings of the Jacobson's organ where the particles, especially those of animal body odors, are identified, analyzed, and acted upon (if a nearby animal is potential food, or perhaps an enemy). Male snakes also use their tongues as part of a courting ritual, that is, the process by which they figure out if a certain female snake is interested in mating with them. The male snake jerks his body around, snapping his tongue in and out, and if the female ignores him, he knows to keep looking for a suitable partner. If she responds favorably, he's found his mate.

Snakes have long tongues because that is how they smell and see. They use the tongue as one of their senses; that is why it is always going in and out of their mouth.
All of them, as far as I know. The olfactory organs of a snake are located in its mouth, and it sticks out its tongue to smell/taste the air.
Yes. All snakes have forked tongues.
