There are two upper windows (annoying - I'd like them to be bigger) on the main doors, two small windows close to the floor, and a large mesh on the ceiling as skylight. The ventilation is fine with or without fly, but if it's really hot, I can't imagine you'd really want the fly on. While it may breathe alright it sill won't feel good to feel all blocked in on a hot night. But it's nice in that other brands these days have too much mesh all over the tent without the fly which takes away too much privacy. This tent offers more privacy than most I think, in that regard. All of the windows (too high or too low - haha) open for air/light or close for complete privacy. I don't have many pics but did find this one from looking up one morning last summer or Fall. Hope it helps. Oh and while you can see through the walls a little, you wouldn't really be able to make anything out. Not as much privacy as some would like but it's not as bad as the picture makes it seem.

I was pretty cold in mine in early September, halfway up a mountain in a campground in the NW, but I didn't have a super warm sleeping bag and I was on one end of the tent with plenty of room between me and the next person over. If you have a warm bag, something to put over your nose in case it gets cold (!), sleep in warm clothing/socks and have someone near you for more body warmth, you might be fine - depending again on how cold do you mean by cold. But if it's winter weather, seems to me you're pushing it a bit. One night at that same time I was soooo cold without the fly (we set up in the dark and were too tired to do anymore) and the next night the fly helped. I was still cold but went to sleep with more clothing and my coat on and I was much better.

I don't know that but I do know that ours (again, the 8-person) fit a queen size air mattress on each side. The inside "wall" does angle a bit if your mattress is too wide (nice option actually) so if you have a super high mattress, it may be a bit awkward. Not sure. Ours was an "all terrain" Aerobed which I think was about 9 or 10" high and it was fine.
