1- Unix is an Operating System. There're many Unix variants from different vendor like Sun, Linux, HP, IBM ... some are free others you'll have to pay for it.
2- Depending on which Unix variants you use, there're different places where you could get it. Linux is a prominent Unix shareware, you could download it at www.linux.org, www.redhat.com 
3- It could basicly ran on 386 to the latest Pentium. Or proprietary hardware from Sun, IBM, HP ...
4- 10 commands of Unix ?? ls, ftp, telnet, talk, rm, cp, df, du ...

Your question are very vast ... a typical profound answer to each of the question would take a few pages each. I would recommend you to go to: http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/faq/usenet/unix-faq/faq/top.html for some of the more frequently asked questions.

If you need more specific information please let me know.
