I don't think its necessary, but I think it would be recommended when you feed them
You don't need to have one but people like it so they can see it lit up at night. Looks nice.
It is not necessary unless you're trying to grow live plants at the same time, or attempting to breed fish in a room that doesn't have natural light. The former is pretty obvious, but the latter is because a fish needs a day/night cycle in order to get on with their normal biological cycles.
Yes, lighting is very important. Many invertebrate can't live longer if there is no proper light. Same is the case with plants.
You don't need to buy an aquarium light for your fish tank unless you're growing plants in it. However, you should provide them with some way of letting them know when it's day and night, like opening the curtains in the room the tank's in, or whatnot. You shouldn't put the tank right next to the window, though, as it could be subject to drafts and algae blooms.

Is a no-fish tank or aquarium a good idea for a beginner?If a saltwater aquarium is much harder to maintain than a freshwater one, how about an aquarium with only coral and other plants but no fish?

Have you set up your first fish tank since the holidays. Or has it been a while since you have set one up and now you got one for the holidays. The Fish Hobby is growing my gills and fins.
