It would go up

The ball would follow a straight line.

in vacuum the ball would continue at the velocity thrown forever. in an atmosphere the ball would gradually slow under resistance until stationary relative to the atmosphere.

It doesn't matter whether the object is thrown down, up, horizontally, or diagonally. Once it leaves the thrower's hand, it is accelerated downward by an amount equal to acceleration of gravity on the planet where this is all happening. On Earth, if you throw an object horizontally, it accelerates downward at the rate of 9.8 meters per second2 ... just as it would if you simply dropped it. Whether it's dropped or thrown horizontally, it hits the ground at the same time.

It falls down due to the force of gravity

The ball will go up itself.

No, it can be thrown in any direction.

Horizontally
