    Get the images scanned with a film scanner. You can get the lab to do it for you too.

    Many people feel it's the real way to train your skills and your eye. You can't take 500 shots and delete the ones you don't like, you need to get it right the first time.

    No. Film has less dynamic range actually. But IMHO film handles blown highlights dark shadows a little more "elegantly".

    That's debatable; compared to earlier digital sensors, certainly. But imho modern sensors have easily more dynamic range than film.

    negative film has larger exposure latitude than slide film, and slide film has similar exposure latitude to digital, hence most people translate that to film has larger dynamic range.

    film and digital is just a medium of photography, it is meaningless to say which is better, just like you can't say which is better between oil painting and watercolor, it depends on which medium is more preferable for each individuals.

    imho is an internet term. It means "in my humble opinion". It's been around since the 1990's.

    As for the film that you use, that will depend on what you want to shoot. There's black and white, or color; and even with color film, different film has different color tones and vibrancy/saturation. Also, you'll need to select the ISO speed of film that you want.

    Film does not use pixels. Don't confuse what is essentially analog with digital. There is no "megapixel" term for film.

    If you have such little knowledge, I really do suggest you read up a bit more online. google and wikipedia have tons of articles for you. Just google for "film photography" and start reading.
