Ok so just a small section of the evaporator frosts up correct and the rest is bare aluminum? If so your unit has a freon leak and is out of freon. This can be an expensive repair and typically not worth repairing unless you can do the job yourself.

Yes it just happens fast as there is only 5 ounces of freon in the systems...you have a leak for sure...sorry
No if the compressor is running the whole evaporator should be frosty, if only the first rung is from the cap tub on then it is out of gas, it is really not that hard to believe this happens all the time.
You would have to install an access valve and DYE....you can use ACR kit 974 to seal and dye the system
It has a small amount left that is why only that little but is frosting. It is about 90 percent out.
Yes it is out of freon, I am not sure what exactly you are looking for?
