That's a really interesting place to introduce Kanji for names, Duolingo.

We've actually already met Tanaka way back ;)

What does 「に」 do in this context?

'To'. It's the dative operator

Can i drop the "san" in Tanaka-san?

Yes, but it will sound rude

No. While it is grammatical, you'll only want to use no honorifics with family members and very close friends.
