You schould always turn the engine on before turning on the water and water off before turning off the engine. I would get it to a workshop in a hurry. Water in the cylinder is not good at all and will be a race against time.

It could be. Do a compression test to ensure that each cylinder is achieving compression, and ensure that the engine does not make awkward noises during cranking.

If the engine was stopped manually, chances are it was not affected at all by the water. Change the oil, however.

no idea on price but this sort of thing is used in salt water so although a new set of rings and a quick hone of the bore will sort it and maybe a new crank bearing as its obvious someone didnt put oil in with the petrol but the problem i have had with a lot of these fun machines is that getting the engine apart after salt water use is ?well lets just say difficult
