If your turnover reaches 375,000 AED, you need to add 5% VAT to all your invoices, register with Federal tax authority and pay VAT quarterly.
Yes, you can. General immigration requirements would apply: you need to rent an apartment and have legalized marriage/birth certificates to apply for visas of your dependants.
You can do a part-time freelance job, but in the majority of the free zones where you can get a freelance permit you need to provide a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from your visa sponsor (employer) in order to setup your freelance permit there.
