I believe you want a distribution group.

Create that account "test@test.com" and in EMC go to Properties of that mailbox and under Mail Flow Setting -> Delivery Options -> Forward to (add those 6 users)

Red is correct, use a distribution group, then add the users you want it to go to to the group.

YES. Create a new user using EMC (Exchange Management Console) and follow my steps above.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think you can only place one forwarding address if you go with Clony's option. I don't remember though off hand.

Yes, a distribution group has an assigned email address then exchange routes to the correct recipients.
