Most of your questions are very individual. It will depend on you as a person if it is easy for you to make friends. People who are sociable will find it very easy, more introverted people will find it difficult. Where you come from doesn't matter as long as you're a nice person.

The stress will depend on the course and how you manage your time. I personally am not that stressed, except for during exam time. My course is not as demanding as other courses.

You typically have flatmates, where you share a kitchen and living room, and sometimes a bathroom. Very rarely do you share a bedroom with someone.

Yes, you can talk to the people next door. It is encouraged to talk to as many people as you can in order to make friends.

It's normally totally random. You pick a room and then it's just whoever else picks a room in that flat you are with. Some unis do offer same sex accommodation. I personally don't see why it is awkward to share a kitchen, bathroom or living room with someone of the opposite sex.

No no. You most likely will have your own room. The only things you will definitely be sharing is a kitchen and a living room. You may share a bathroom. You almost definitely will have your own bedroom.

You will have more than one roommate. Most unis have flats of somewhere between 4-10 people. If you have more people, you will have more bathrooms/showers and probably a bigger kitchen.

So it won't just be you sharing with one man. It would probably be a mix of guys and girls.

Yup. At my uni (Sheffield) you can choose, but different unis have different systems. I'm afraid I don't know how Cambridge's system works.
