Noncollinear points are points which are not all on a common line.

no

Only one plane can pass through 3 non-collinear points.

That figure is best described as a "triangle".

There is no specific name in general. If the line segments are straight, then it is a triangle.

yes. For example the corners of a square, or on the circumference of a circle.

No. For example, consider the vertices of a tetrahedron (triangle-based pyramid).
