What kind of lights do you have? 50 watts of lighting does not tell us a lot, since the WPG guideline is long obsolete due to the advent of newer types of bulbs. The WPG guideline can really only be applied to T12 bulbs.

That being said:

Yes, most likely without any problems.

You may need carbon dioxide and fertilization for the former 2. The latter might be OK without them.

There was no question here.

An 8 hour photoperiod is usually sufficient.

Depends on how deep you want it; 2 - 3 inches is a good depth.

Soak in a large bucket of water for weeks.

Depends on what fish you want to keep There are lots of choices for an aquarium of that size.

In terms of fertilization, it depends on what fertilization regimen you want to follow. It also depends on whether you want to use bulk chemicals or go with commercially available products (though I am unsure of the availability of either in India).
