You would cut off a corner.

Make a cross in the middle

Yes.

It depends on the pyramid. If it is a square based pyramid, a horizontal plane will give a square cross section, a plane inclined by a rotation parallel to one of the base axes will give a rectangular cross section whereas a plane inclined by rotation along both basal axes will result in a parallelogram cross section. Not sure how you get a parallelogram from a pentagonal or hexagonal (etc) pyramid.

No. The shape with the greatest volume to surface area ratio is the sphere. Therefore i surmise that the cylinder that looks closer to a sphere in proportions will have the greater volume. A cylinder with a square "cross section" (axially) would then have the greatest volume for a given area.

You cut an ellipsoid with a plane perpendicular to one of its axes at a position where the cross section is a 21 unit circle. Either section will make a dome - one will taper off while the other will bulge before it tapers.

Yes.

The cross section of a figure is done by slicing part of the figure off a certain way. Inside the sliced area, there will be a 2-D figure. That 2-D figure is the cross section of the figure.

just cut the sample transversely.

Nope, that's a triangle.
