Hopefully you have a local agent who can research your questions for you. You don't indicate what property you are asking about, so no one here can answer most of your questions. Dan is right about pending that means an offer has been accepted by the sellers and they are waiting to finalize the transaction. The seller may entertain a back up offer, but in most cases the first offer has precedence and will have to withdraw for you to buy the home. Should their financing fall through, or inspection issues they don't want to deal with come up, it is possible but not highly likely.
