Not sure exactly which one, but its part of the Ranellidae family if not mistaken. They are predators on other snails, tube worms, sea stars and turnicate sponges.

Might be Bursidae, but the siphonal channel is too short from the pictures. Anyway, Bursidae is also predators on worms and snails.

Where did you get it from, which beach? And a picture from the bottom side will help.

Anyway, put it back where you got it from.

Urchins are cool. Depending on your tank size and if you will have enough food for them to eat.

the snails look cool but I would stick to what you know about and collect just them.
