about kiwi fruit
Can you tell me the difference between a male and female kiwi fruit? Also, when you have heaps of little plants, when should I transplant them into other pots or the ground? The seedlings are about 7 1/2 cm in height.

It is difficult to tell the difference between the male and female plants before they bloom. With the arctic varieties, the males will have a bit more variegation in the leaves. But other varieties are impossible to tell before blooming. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/kiwi/sex-of-kiwi-plants.htm
I would not set out the seedlings until they are at least 1 year old. Kiwis are very susceptible to root rot their first year and it is best to keep them in the drier pots for a year before planting into the ground.
