I personally think that it's very easy to learn (though like all languages, it takes a lot of practice to master). I see you've made a lot of progress in German; Swedish is much easier than German, I'd say.

It's very easy. A lot of it is close to English and grammar is easy too. Like any language, it's challenging and takes time to master, but overall I'd recommend it.

Comparable to the course you take on german, it's a lot easier.

It's a quite easy language. A lot of words are similar to Germanic languages like English and German (and way more similar to Danish and Norwegian, if you are familiar with them).

As native English speaker, I found the Scandinavian languages are the easiest ones for me. The grammar is not hard. As English is a Germanic language, I find other Germanic languages feel more natural than Romance language like French and Spanish. Also a lot of Scandinavian vocabulary is similar to German and to English.

The grammar is super easy but the spelling of words and the pronunciation are very hard to master

It all depends on a multitude of factors. Your ability to easily learn a new language and the language(s) you already know. Since English and Swedish are relatively close related, I think it should be relatively easy for an English native speaker. Give it a try and you'll see what you think. :)

The grammar is much easier (for me, at least) than Spanish or French, the only two other languages that I have studied. But I've never really heard Swedish so I have more difficulty with understanding spoken Swedish and spelling words correctly.

I've been studying Japanese for a year and a half and after starting Swedish... well, I've realized just how difficult Japanese is. Comparatively, Swedish is much easier for me. Grammar-wise, it's very similar to English. It's the spelling that really throws me off, more than anything.
