Sometimes it depends on the variety.

Huh, I am a woman!! I just presumed by your reaction to an insect in your kitchen you were a woman too! I can be much, much ruder than that if you wish!

Let it grow taller. The tomato plant is genetically programmed to grow trusses at certain intervals up the stem. But you have to balance the number of trusses with the likelihood of their ripening before the temperature drops in the Autumn.

Don't try to run before you can walk!

Doh! And they want to promote women into responsible positions in the workplace!!! Remind yourself never to to Australia where they have cockroaches in the kitchen. Or are you OK with those?

Probably too much light and certainly lack of pollination!

It's a shame they are being ripped out as trees give some structure to a garden. They are also easy-upkeep.

Sometimes if you go to a garden centre they will do you a good deal on plants suitable for the tables if you buy lots.

The first step would have been to dig around the trees to sever the roots, at least a couple of feet from the trunks. Then they can be lifted more easily. This should be done, perhaps a season before you want to move them.

I would look into it quite carefully; it might be cheaper to buy those varieties locally rather than transporting them.
