Yes, but it's limited. DreamHost only offers its 97-day money-back guarantee on shared hosting purchased by credit card. No other products, services, or payment methods are eligible. If you received a free domain, the value will be deducted from your refund.
The minimum term on most packages is 1 month.
DreamHost has its own proprietary control panel, Web Panel.
DreamHost prefers support requests to go through its ticketing system. You can open a new ticket by filling in a form on its website. Its technical support team is based in-house, and is available 24/7. It does offer live chat as well. If you'd like to speak on the phone, you'll need to ask for a callback. There is a fee for telephone support.
No. The support team provides support in English only.

PHP 5, Python, Perl, Ruby on Rails, and Ruby are supported on shared hosting plans. IPv6 is also supported.
DreamHost allows reseller, but it doesn't offer a traditional reseller option. If you want to resell its hosting, you just add your customers' domains to your account, and manage them in the usual way. DreamHost does not provide any white label services or support, and you will be fully responsible for any violation of DreamHost's terms.
DreamHost takes daily snapshots, but these are for internal use only. DreamHost is vague about the details, so it would be wise to make your own backup arrangements using the manual backup feature in the web panel.
