    Yes but buy good quality ones , you’ll see a big difference. You also need a hammer drill. Not all electric drills have that and I would advise using a mains powered drill unless your cordless us 36v or more .

    yes it sure does  and if you put it in an impact grill it will be even better For really really hard extruded bricks then you might need a diamond core drill

    Yes almost always. Some older brick is more difficult to drill into. But a masonry bit is what you would use for that--and a drill that is powerful enough to drive it. Some cordless drills aren't up to the job.

    Yes, mostly. Some bricks are very hard, but you don't usually find those in domestic construction. However it works best if the drill is an impact one, what is known as a hammer drill, and the bits don't last forever. You get the best fixing into the middle of a brick - lime mortar can just pull out

    yes.  a hammer drill is preferable.  the mortar is a lot softer than brick, btw.  a large bit might just crack a brick --

    Being made to drill into brick is the DEFINITION of a masonry bit.
