Benefits Trump will lose if impeached a second time.

I also read trump would lose lifetime security clearance.

I do not know if this is true--as I have not seen an official document. So take with a grain of salt

1. Not sure, but I think those things only happen if the senate convicts.

2. I'm sure, otherwise they would have happened after the first impeachment.

I think the confusion comes from misunderstanding of impeachment as against conviction.

Edited to add: and that source doesn’t look too reliable.

4. If that's the case, then

. . .every Senator who fails to vote for conviction should be forced to run against that record in every future bid for reelection. We can never allow them to escape the fact that they’re using our tax dollars to reward the seditionist we fired.

3. No.

This keeps coming up and it's false.

Unless the Senate convicts, there are no direct consequences. Lack of conviction is the general equivalent of an acquittal in a criminal trial, though it is not a criminal procedure.

5. Should some republicans switch parties to remove Moscow Mitch from stalling it,

To bring it to the floor asap? Republicans are destroying themselves and their party if the don't after what trump and others have done. If republicans refuse to do this to undermine Moscow Mitch, they're complicit with trump, with these extremist and hate groups, and they're complicit in the attack on our Capital by fascist organized and planned by trump . These republicans could switch back after he's gone, but make it where he can never run again, something that'll make him leave before that happens. He needs to be able to run to grift his supporters, so that'll be his weak spot to threaten him with, to force his resignation.

6. His numerous state charges and likely convictions will subdue his enjoyment of any post-WH benefits

7. Why would a second impeachment be any different from the first?

Is there something in the Constitution about you get one free impeachment?
