Mu Chinese Horse Chestnut is only 1 single stem. It has leaves and flowers at the top of the stem then a gap of about 1 to 1 & 1/2 foot then more leaves and flowers. I want to put it in a bigger pot, When and how do I do this? I am trying to keep it in a pot til we buy a home (soon I hope)

A 15 gallon nursery pot will work for a tree that is 8 to 12 feet tall.

Use a good quality commercial potting mix and add a slow release fertilizer to the soil mix. Do not over fertilize.
