    I did this with daffodil bulbs that were dug up from my mother in laws garden, I put them all together in our garage in a corner in a bucket, all together, planted them the next spring and it was great, almost all took and flowered, stays above 35 degrees in the garage, closest to the house. Hope this helps, also used sawdust and a lined dog food bag one year, that worked good too.

    The ground is probably too frozen at this time to plant the bulbs, but you can, as you suggest, put them in the fridge (or a cold garage) and plant them in the spring as soon as you are able. They will bloom (eventually). Just place them in a paper bag if they are going in the fridge. They will need at least 6-8 weeks of cold, so if you start now, they should just be ready for the ground in spring.

    You should not trim the leaves. This is how the bulbs build up energy for next year. Once the leaves go yellow on their own, you will need to pre-chill them to get them to bloom for next year.

    If you put the bulbs in the fridge and plant them as soon as the ground thaws, there is a good chance they will bloom for youin the spring.

    As long as your ground is not frozen solid (i.e. you can dig in it) you can still plant the tulip bulbs.

    Yes, you should divide tulips once they become overcrowded or at least every two to five years. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/tulips/dividing-tulip-bulbs.htm
