How does data sharing work

Where can I find details about data sharing? I found nothing in the Help pages.

Is there a fee or "haircut" (e.g., 200MB subtracted from my account for each 100MB added to friend's account) on gifts.

Limits? Per gift? Per friend? Per month? I do see one forum post that says 100MB per friend per month, but it's not clear to me whether the 500MB total monthly maximum he mentions refers to friend bonuses (i.e., 50MB x 10 friends) or 500MB in total gifts (e.g., 5 friends each gifting 100MB to you), or the sum of those two amounts. And does that 500MB max apply to incoming gifts, outgoing gifts, or the sum of incoming+outgoing gifts, or what?

Are there restrictions on sharing data between friends are on different plans? For example, someone with a WiMAX mobile hotspot on a 4G-only Pro 500MB plan sharing with someone who has an LTE mobile hotspot on a premium 2GB plan)?

    You can send 100 MBs to a single person, 500 MBs total.

    One gift per month per recipient. Amount can be 20, 50, or 100 mb. Cannot send 2nd gift.

    It is up to 100mb every 2 months. Check your account. I think this was. Hanged recently. Once you give any amount to a friend you can not give them
    Anymore for 2 months.
