1. Never heard of it, so no idea
2. The GIMP. While not quite as advanced as Photoshop, it's ~90% as capable, which means far more capable than most people ever needs still.
3. LibreOffice, Open365 for a web-based, OnlyOffice for web-based

Hello and welcome to the forum

Along with what Timothy Miller has suggested, I understand this online service is pretty good, too.
