Short version = "tu" and "vous" can mean "you" (singular) in English. Read more here...
Vocabulary says that 'êtes' is (you-plural) 'are'. Can I assume this is wrong and êtes is just the vous form of 'are' whether singular or plural?
"Vous" may be either singular or plural. Both are translated simply as "you". The "vous" form of the conjugation of être is "vous êtes". The familiar (and always singular) form is "tu es". Both "vous êtes" and "tu es" are translated as "you are".
"t'es" is not proper French, only used in spoken French but not in writing.
Yes, but with a circumflex accent: vous êtes seul (seule, seuls, seules).
"vous" can be singular as a formal address to a stranger or to someone you owe respect to.
in that case that single person can be a man or a woman.
