    In the WordPress dashboard, please go to Tools => Export. You'd get an xml file after exporting. Then on each subdomain, import this file at Tools => Import. I hope this helps.

    No, I don't. Because I haven't done a similar thing. But, from what I know, there is no plugin to do this. It may require exporting the tables from the database, renaming the tables and then importing them back to the database. I know this may not be an easy work. But, it's what I know.

  5. Widgets you cannot.

    Menus you should actually be able to, since they're CPTs (custom post types).

    Basically you are trying to create a mirror copy of your main site on ur sub-domain if i am correct in understanding, wpmudev have a plugin called blog templates, which creates a mirror copy and it is developed for multisite , i have tested and used it works perfectly.

    on the other hand if u dont want to use the plugin, use a script for db search and replace while dumping your sql file (it gives a GUI based interface for easy db dumping and replacing) and than do tools > export
    should work fine and widgets would also be exported like this

  8. There's a free plugin called Blog Copier that does that, however it doesn't copy pages to existing blogs, only new ones.
