1. First in, always raise.
2. Depends on who raised. If it's an EP raise and you're IP post flop then call. (say UTG raised, and it's folded to you OTB just call). If you're in the blinds, with AK then imho it's almost always a 3b. Though, if UTG or UTG+1 raised it depends a lot on their stats/image. You always want to see the flop HU, though, so keep that in mind when deciding whether to flat or 3b.
3. You should fold AK when OOP and facing a 3b though it depends on villain; sometimes 4B and get it in. IP, I'm pretty much always calling the 3b.
4. Depends on what you want to accomplish. You should be more inclined to 4b when OOP with AK against a villain you're willing to get it aipf with. If villain is a nit and 3bs, then fold it OOP and flat it IP.
5. The point of 3betting is to re-seize initiative and cbets will work more often in 3b pots. Sometimes, though, you need to be willing to double barrel when you whiff the flop. Say you're in the SB and 3b AK and villain OTB or CO flats your 3b and you whiff. Vs. some villain's, I'm simply c/f if I miss. Vs. others, I'll double barrel all day even when I miss.
6. Why are they always putting you on AK? Is it b/c you cbet the flop and then shut down?
All of the above applies mostly for 50NL. In the end, it depends on the villain's image, your image and position. It depends too much on the situation to give straight forward answers....
