By "all the data" you mean just Documents or your whole hard drive? You only get 5 GB free do you pay for more storage?
It sounds like you're looking to use OneDrive as a Time Machine solution, which isn't possible. You can store your important data and files in your OneDrive account, but you can't store a backup of your entire hard drive, including the OS and applications, the way Time Machine does.
I suggest you read this: https://www.howtogeek.com/196315/6-ways-to-actually-use-1-tb-of-cloud-storage/
If you want a backup of your hard drive I suggest you use Time Machine with an external or local network drive

No that's the problem with OneDrive and large files you just have to try again but see: Store — But Don’t Sync — Large Files in the link I sent you
How large are these files?
A few gigs should be fine I suggest you check your drive for errors:
10.11 or above
Reboot into the Recovery HD by choosing the ‘Apple‘ menu > Restart, then hold down the ‘Command’ + R’ keys on the keyboard during the start up process. When you see the Apple Logo you can let go.
When the machine boots you may have to choose your language then you will see the OS X Utilities screen. Select the Disk Utility and then Continue. Then in Disk Utility select Macintosh HD in the left column (if there are two with that name or it is named something else choose the first indented item) and then on the right select the First Aid tab then select Run.
10.10 or below

Then in Disk Utility select Macintosh HD in the left column (if there are two with that name or it is named something else choose the first indented item) select the First Aid tab if it is not already selected, then click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that says “OK” in green type then select Repair Disk Permissions. If it is not ok let me know.
Right you have to put them in the One Drive folder and use the app
It shouldn't: https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-GB/download/
Not the ONeDrive folder in your browser the folder on your computer
You can't backup applications using One Drive you have to use Time Machine for that you must buy an external HD as well as upgrade your current drive.
It is a physical part of your computer that has to be replaced unless your are very skilled at taking computers apart this has to be done at Apple or another service provider. You will need to back it up first using Time Machine
