What’s the smallest size belly bar?
The default size for belly bars is 10 mm length and 1.6 mm thickness, which should be suitable for most belly button piercings. However, if you’re not sure what size you need you can measure the one you’re currently wearing. Despite the default thickness being 1.6 mm, some people prefer a 1.2 mm belly bar.

For others, it never closes, instead, the hole simply gets smaller but remains visible.
It’s not a matter of can/can‘t, but rather should/shouldn’t. The shape of the navel doesn’t matter too much, any navel can be pierced if there is enough tissue depth to the skin available above or below the navel.
Yes all day you can. However, the 16g post is thinner than the 14g. Downsizing is not an issue unless you’ve got a large collection of 14g jewelry that you wish to wear again. Downsizing to 16g is safe as long as it is healed.
No. Piercing needles are hollow. They are made like that so that a ring can be inserted without removing the needle from the skin. If you stick a sewing needle into your skin, then remove it to put in the ring, the hole where the needle is inserted will shrink up immediately.
