"It's hailing!" would be more natural English (accepted).

Either one could be used, but it depends on the situation. For example, when talking about a climate, you could say, "It never snows here, but it hails!"

Yes, but as an isolated sentence "Het hagelt!" is much more likely to be "It is hailing!" (like "It is snowing" later in the lesson).

You're allowed to translate it like that if you want. Either one is totally fine.
