Android studio IDE was horible and is still not awesome but as it is from google it works quite well with android. 

Just start out with android studio and lock up tools if you have the need for them. As beginner you don't need anything else then a IDE and a tutorial.

You can use Android Studio (which is based on Intellij) or IntelliJ with some plugins. Maybe Eclipse if you don't like Android Studio/IntelliJ for whatever reason. Unity would depend on what you're trying to do, e.g. game development.

You can use xarmin for cross platform development. Idk if you need studio. 

 

You can also use app inventor online under MIT license.

Pygame might work. It’s an API for python.

Here's a resource that might help you:

https://wiki.python.org/moin/Android

 

The primary languages for Android development would be Java, Kotlin and C++ for native development. Not sure what restrictions (if any) you have with Python. Just be aware that the official documentation and also most resources on Stack Overflow etc. use Java and/or Kotlin.

Then you'll probably have to use whatever language the game engine requires. I have no experience with Unity.

Yes, you need to create APKs. How you create those APKs is up to you, the primary build system would be Gradle. If you follow the link above you'll see that there are some plugins for Android Studio, others seem to work with Gradle directly. You can absolutely create an APK file from the command line without starting Android Studio, if you have a build system (e.g. Gradle, Android build tools and whatever plugins are needed for Python)

This reminds me. Kivy is a great framework for developing cross-platform applications in python. It also allows easy access to Android API.

which reminded me... even though Python is the only wrong answer to "What technology we should use?"
.... here's a good resource!
Some should export to android/iPhone.
