Most of these questions are really dependant on who you're going to deliver the project to, but I'll try to throw in a couple cents..

"-Standard-def or Hi-def, or both?
-What size?(aspect ratio)
-Frame rate.

This depends on so many other questions, most of which depends on who is broadcasting you project. Where are you located? US = NTSC (30 fps, but then there's drop-frame and all that), europe = PAL (25 fps).

-File formats

Also dependant on who you're delivering to. Some stations will accept an mpeg2 file, others will only take a tape, be it beta sp, digibeta or something in the dv family. And thats just for SD.

-Square pixels or both?

Pixel aspect is also decided by delivery format, but it's probably not going to be square pixels.

-Should I add a time code to anything."

You'll probably have to make a tape master at some point, so yes. Some broadcasters might have starting TC as part of their delivery specs.

Sorry I can't help more, but there really aren't a lot of global answers to these questions.
