A year ago, the dealer transferred everything on my old iMac

Customer Question

A year ago, the dealer transferred everything on my old iMac OS-9
into a used iMac G-3, Tiger OS 10.4.11.

Now the dealer transferred everything from the iMac G-3, Tiger OS 10.4.11,
into my newest used stand-alone Mac PowerPC G-5, Tiger OS 10.4.11.

I also transfered everything from another Mac-Mini PowerPC G-4, Tiger OS 10.4.11 into the same new Mac PowerPC G-5, Tiger OS-10.4.11.

Problems:
(1) Every time I open an old file, Mac 9 must load.
(2) I can’t print OS-9 Word 98 or Word 2001 documents on a Canon iP1500.
      I can only print AppleWorks documents

Questions:
(3) Can I avoid opening Mac 9 everytime I want to read an OS-9 document?
(4) Is there any way to print OS-9, Word 98 and Word 2001 documents?
(5) Can I write everything in Word, not in AppleWorks?
(6) Can I easily convert my AppleWords docs into Word?
(7) Should I use Word 98 or Word 2001, or buy a updated Word?
(8) Will the updated Word convert all Word 98 and Word 2001 documents?
(9) How do I solve upgrade problems?

Dear XXXXX,

Appleworks 6.2.7

But I prefer to use Word, which I am familiar with and always used on all my Mac computers for the last 20 years.
95% of my files are in some version of Word.

I wish colleges in Taiwan, where I teach, used Mac. My students who create animation use Mac, but they have trouble getting help or repairs in Taiwan. The only Macs there are iPods.

Thank you for your help! I just got your message when I woke up this morning (in Anaheim, where I am for summer vacation, not Taiwan).
