Yes, this is done under Rule 30(b)(6) in federal court and analogous state court rules. The corporation is required to designate a person knowledgeable about the facts to speak on its behalf, and the company is bound by the witness's answers (generally cannot later take a contrary position to that taken by the witness).

Most states have a "survival statute" that states that a corporation continues to exist for a specified period of time for purposes of winding up its affairs. In Delaware, for example, 8 Del. C. s 278 states: "All corporations, whether they expire by their own limitation or are otherwise dissolved, shall nevertheless be continued, for the term of 3 years from such expiration or dissolution or for such longer period as the Court of Chancery shall in its discretion direct, bodies corporate for...
You will need the client's permission to use their trademark or other IP on your website. That permission should be in writing.
In the future, you may get around this problem by ensuring that your contracts retain "portfolio rights" - that is, the right to show the design work as part of your online portfolio. You may also have a provision in which the client authorizes you to use their logo. A good IP attorney can assist with drafting the right language.
A non US citizen can be a member of an LLC in Delaware and every other state as far asI am aware.

There are two aspects to your question: 1) whether you will be liable to the buyer for injuries caused by this termite damage and 2) whether you will be liable to third parties who come on the land after the sale.

In addition to the answers above, I would add that just because the landlord can get a judgment against a failing business doesn't mean they will be able to execute that judgment against the owner's personal assets. It depends on the specific state laws to some extent but generally the members of a LLC or shareholders of a corporation are not liable for the debts of the company (a sole proprietorship or general partnership is usually a different matter). Sometimes however, a landlord requires...
Your header indicates 50/50 ownership but you mention multiple partners, so it's not clear to me what the structure is here. The circumstances under which an LLC can be dissolved are governed generally by its operating agreement. Apparently yours does not address dissolution.
Section 702 of the NY LLC Law allows you to petition the NY Supreme Court for dissolution:
§ 702. Judicial dissolution. On application by or for a member, the
supreme court in the judicial district in...
Has the incorporator appointed a board of directors? Have the Board members issues stock to the shareholders? If these steps have been done, then the board may appoint officers (vp, secretary,etc.) and set their duties. They do not need to issue shares to the officers in order to have them appointed.
