1.Can a Schedule line of a sales item of a order be in different delivery docs?

Yes. It is possible. The possible reason are:

a. Schedule Line is for different Dates.

b. Shipping point is different

c. At line item, Ship-to-party are different

2. What are batches in a delivery item? Can each batch of a delivery item have different delivery dates?

Some of the Material is manufactured and maintained in Batches. For Eg. In a Pharma Company, a particular quantity of same medicine will belong to same batch probably as they might have been manufactured from a particular mix.

A material from same batch can be delivered to multiple customer and also the delivery date can vary.

3. How is delivery different from shipping? Can a delivery date be different from a shipment date?

Delivery and Shipping are different terms with similar meaning. In SAP the 2 dates can be different, as one may be the date on which the customer receives the material and another date is a date on which the material is exoected to be ready for shipment.

4. What does Goods issue date mean? does it mean, the product was issued from the manufacturing plant on that date or does it mean it was delievered to a customer on tha tdate?

Goods issue refer to material being dispatched from the plant premises and ownership of material moving to the customer. This is an issue date to customer and has no relevance as to when it was transfered from Production stock to sales stock.

5. Will different delivery items of a delivery doc have different created on dates?

If refering to single delivery document with multiple line items, it will have same dates.

6. Is Created on date available at the header level and item level of a delivery doc?

Ideally at Header level.
