My understanding is that Подруга is just the feminine form of "friend", but can also be used to refer to a girlfriend. I'm scared that I may someday say "this is my [female] friend (подруга)", but it will get interpreted as girlfriend :D But yeah, дівчина is always "girlfriend" IIRC.

"Моя подруга/ приятелька" = "My female friend"
(platonic); and, "Моя дівчина" = "My girlfriend" (romantic). I hope this helps. :D

Це так зване "dummy it." Воно заміняє відсутній підмет в реченні і не виступає в ролі особового займенника.
