      Hi,
      According to the SHC, you should just call with 99 in middle/late position with 1 or more call in front.
      On the flop: unless you have a read that villain often donks small with air, it's better not to raise (and even if you do, raising isn't a very good line imo) . Here you can either fold, or better, call the small bet and re-evaluate on the turn. When he checks, then just check behind for pot control and a cheap showdown; you don't want to play a big pot with just middle pair.
      To answer #4, yes you can call such a small bet since he'll often show a small pair or even air.
