You can transfer Pokemon up to Sun/Moon all the way back from a gen 3 game+R/B/Y if you have that from the 3DS eshop. It's technically not trading though since it's a one-way trip; once they've moved up a generation, you can't send them back to previous one.

Sun/Moon can't trade with any older games. If you have X/Y yourself you can transfer them from your X/Y game to your Sun/Moon game. You can also trade with people on this site for the stuff you want.

Yes, but I think the chance is about 1%.
Also, it doesn't need to be Poliwag. Any Pokemon that are weather specific can be called by any Pokemon, as I once got a Poliwrath that was called by a Petilil.

Hey everyone. Just got Sun and I have a quick question. Do Tapu's breed? Are they legendaries?

The Tapus are classed as "island deities" though they have similarities with legendaries, such as being caught in a special location and being in the Undiscovered egg group. Their BSTs are also not too far off from what most legendary BSTs are. Another thing to notice is the Tapus are registered in the Pokedex with a green background (alongside Type: Null/Silvally and Ultra Beasts) meaning "special Pokemon" while the actual legendaries (such as Solgaleo and Lunala) have a lenticular/yellow background.

Speaking of breeding, they can't due to the aforementioned Undiscovered egg group classification.

Does anyone have any ideas for a 6th member to my team?

Incineroar Fire/Dark
Vikavolt Bug/Electric
Toxapex Poison/Water
Mimikyu Ghost/Fairy
Kommo-o Dragon/Fighting

Keep in mind I don't use legendaries if any are available and I only want to use 7th gen pokemon. I'm really not sure who to go with for this last spot. There really aren't any fast special attackers that don't overlap with the types I have. There isn't really anything fast for that matter. Even if I did overlap types, who are some of the best Pokemon available?

u hav a mimikyu, so that means that u hav reached ulaula island. use alolan nintales, it is a beast. it can be found in tapu village, in the grass. also, golisopod is a good idea. you can find him in many places. i dont know many, but i u r willing to train for a while, u can get a wimpod easily near the lush jungle area, the place near the water, just before the entrance.

I'm gonna start my game over to use this new team. I'll probably train a ninetales for competitive use but I just want to use 7th gen pokes for the playthrough. Golisopod sounds cool. Who would you say are the best 7th gen pokes that aren't legendaries or starters?

Ribombee or Bewear can be decent choices depending on the moveset. Or, judging by your types, a grass type like Lurantis would be great.

In addition to above suggestions, Tsareena can also make for a good choice if you want a Grass-type. She gets High Jump Kick, U-Turn, Trop Kick and even both the screen moves so she can be very useful on a team. You could get a Bounsweet from an in-game trade, or just easily catch one in the west section of Lush Jungle.

Araquanid is also a decent Pokemon, since its Water-type moves hit really hard thanks to its Water Bubble ability. Golisopod has a higher Attack stat, but it's your call on which Bug/Water line you want to use since both are great. Plus, Wimpod are usually harder to find and catch than a Dewpider would be.

Then there's your question on Oranguru. It's got decent special stats but not much else to write home about. Its Sun counterpart Passimian is a nice physical attacker as well.

It's an Easter Egg from Gen VI.

You can sell it back for it's price. It serves no other purpose.
