Questions I have for Commercial Pilots

Hi there, I’m currently 15 years old and I am thinking of my career. I’ve always been fascinated with commercial planes till recently I got the urge to want to go to school for it. My questions are honestly simple, and I’m sure they have been answered before but I could not find them. How much would the cost be for College to go to school for being a Commerical Pilot? Would I be able to skip classes in college if I have experience in flying already? What classes can I take in High School to make College easier? How much will I make in the first year of me becoming a Commerical Pilot? How will my plane be chosen? Will I pick one or will the company just give me a random one.

Thank you for reading this Topic, and thank you for your time.
