The most popular size is 3/8 inch, which means it accommodates a 3/8-inch diameter bit. Smaller ¼-inch drills are less expensive, but more limited. Heavy duty jobs might require a ½-inch model.

SOURCE: chuckless drill stuck tight with drill bit in

if you trap the chuck in a bench vice or alike and then use the drill in reverse in short bursts until it loosens a good spray with wd40 will also aid the situation

SOURCE: how the cordless drill works in drill mode,

the basic operation for the drill working in the drill only mode is you tighten the clutch up which puts more pressure on the spring not allowing the clutch to ratchet like it would in another position therefore bypassing the clutch completely. Give me the brand and model number and I will try and find a parts explosion for you.

I would like to know the size of chuck key needed for this drill

Can't answer the question; you did't mention the brand name or model number of the drill...however, take the drill motor with you to your local hardware store...they should be able to match a key up to your drill

How to use?

It is used to check either the size of a drill bit or to see what size fastener you have and decide what size bit to use. Just insert a bit or fastener into a hole. It should fit snugly and if it doesn't fit the next smaller sized hole then you now know what size you have.

tricky question the size and the cost is important so .repair drill cost versus new drill?

repair chuck may be good but other parts should be repaired once you are inside the drill which is going to cost more.
