1. The date boxes on the calendar are small. I can only use Font 8 or 9. How do I increase the box size?
2. After I type the information I want on the date, if I have other dates requiring the same information, how do I get that on the other dates without opening another text box. I was told to double click on the new date however, that brings up the Edit box in the right frame and I have to close it in order to be able to type anything (even click on the Text) to get a text box. This is so confusing. What is the simplest method of typing the same material on different dates.
3. Also, I upload this calendar to our website however, the information is sketchy as if the pixels are too large or small, but its hardly readable. What is the remedy for that?

I copy the text box (the object, not just words in the text box), then paste, paste, paste. This adds multiple text boxes with identical formatting. I can then position each new box on a different date and edit the words.
Not sure if you meant you couldn't use a bigger font because you had to fit a lot of words in the space of a "date cell". Unfortunately, the date cells will always be a fixed size within a one month calendar. Perhaps use the blank area after the last date to type in more info.

Pixel dimensions are critical when displaying an image on a webpage. Assuming you created a JPG version of your calendar, which export image size did you use? Could you provide the link to the webpage so I can see how your calendar displays?
For example, does this JPG created with PM8, look clear enough on this web page?

On the subject of website calendars, I highly recommend the free Google calendar. I use it for my church's website. You have all the room you want to describe your events which are revealed when a reader clicks on an event. As well, this calendar is TEXT, not a JPG. Text is always clear and sharp no matter how close you zoom in.
Our website is chicagonaz.com. The event calendar is clearer when smaller, but if I want it to fill the page, the text is blurry and difficult to read. I uploaded the calender 3 times, but do not see it anywhere.

If you want a bigger, clearer image, you need to create a higher resolution image. The image on your site is only 716 x 541. Choose a bigger export size. For example, the one I posted above is 1100 x 850.
Your web template may limit the image size which would defeat the effort of uploading a bigger image.
What I would do, is upload a higher resolution image to the server, and create a link on the webpage to display the larger image in a new window, like this: bigger calendar
I still think utilizing a google calendar works best on a website. Zooming in never blurs the calendar because it isn't a raster image. A google calendar has actual text, and the cells expand to fit the amount of text you wish to type in.
