Would "støtter" refer to literal, physical support or emotional/mental support? Or both? Thank you in advance!

It could refer to either of those, as well as financial support.

So would financial support be "finansiell støtter"

"financial support" would be "finansiell støtte", or "pengestøtte".

In the context of the above sentence, you could specify it like this:

"Kvinnen støtter mannen finansielt."
"The woman supports the man financially."

Would kvinna also be correct as the definite form?
