Yes, you can say but спокойной ночи (spokoinoi nochi) most popular.

Yes, but I think people rarely use dobroi nochi, more spokoinoi nochi :)

you can, but spokoinoi nochi is more popular, as "dobriy"/"dobroy" implies a greeting ("dobriy den'") while spokoinoi can be literally translated into peaceful/calm

Sure , you can say "Доброй ночи" (dobroi nochi).

sure, but in what system did you transliterate добрОй (night is female in russian) into dubryi?
