So "er" can be assumed to be used for all "you are", "am", "is" ?

Yes, Norwegian is even simpler than English in this regard. No declension of verbs in the present tense.

Based on feedback on other questions, I wondered if this should be "Den er en mann", as the speaker knows that the thing in question is a gendered noun (mann). Is this right?
