How can I understand what "you" means? Tu? Vos? I don't know!

You can just always use "tu". It won't be a mistake

Visne or Vultisne, please. Classical Latin does not use the subjunctive to ask polite questions as we do in English.

Yes, this is a very confusing construction.

"Desiderasne" was not accepted. Is it only looking for "volo, velle" here?
