This is almost like Ukrainian. На що ви дивитеся?

Na ščo vy dyvytesja?

yes, it's a reflexive pronoun. "se" is accusative case, there is also "si", which is dative case (both would be "sich" in German).

So would this be correct?

Divate se - (You) look/ (You’re) looking

Se divate - (Are you) looking

Sorry I don’t have accents. I haven’t got them on my keyboard.

Se divate is wrong, it violates the second position rule for se.

Is "na" not counted as a unit of meaning or is "na co" combined unit?

"Na co" is the unit of meaning.

I appreciate we are learning Czech, not English, but the English translation has a hanging preposition. Surely it should be "At what are you looking?"

That's an old, useless grammar rule. Nobody speaks or writes like that. A quote from Winston Churchill, "That's the sort of pedantry up with which I will not put." Hanging prepositions are a very common thing in English, no longer considered bad grammar
