What is perhaps not understood well in the west is that the Chinese HSR network tends to skirt towns and the town can acquire a West North East and South HSR station on its outskirts if HSR lines come from 4 different directions. A subway brings people into the town itself from the HSR station.

Then the Chinese build a new town around the station itself. This is somewhere in Wuhan (don't know which Wuhan HSR station), from Big-Dog in the Chinese language forum

You can see a city growing around Wuhan North railway station here .

As for the main Wuhan station...yes it is big.

BEIJING - A new high-speed railway will open on Sunday in eastern China to boost regional traffic in the booming Yangtze River Delta, according to China Railway Corporation (CRC).
It will link Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu province, and Anqing in Anhui province, cutting the rail travel time from nearly six hours to about two.
It will extend 257 kilometers with ten stations.
Where does it cross Hefei-Fuzhou high speed railway? In Tongling?

That is a freight classification yard.

I think you mean here

The Wuhan pretty much grew around the station already.

So - in a village. Not in a neighbourhood.

Is Zhongming Village in a subdistrict, town or township?

Well, the answer is quite simple, I think? In order to make quick progress, China bought Japanese and German high speed trains and technology.

I found that the tv sets in China look very similar to the American ones
I found the ceramics in Europe look the same as Chinese ones
What's the connections between them?

They look the same everywhere. Korea and Japan makes the high end ones and China and Turkey make the mid - low market ones. Europe and the US make no TVs now, 0.

One make of Chinese train is a copy of the latest Japanese shinkansen. China now claims to have invented the technology and won't pay licencing costs on the copies.

I've heard rumors that China is planning on putting back the old speed limits (from before the Wenzhou crash)

Can anyone confirm or deny?

as always, google and wiki(even grossly outdated) can be your good friends in such cases:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_..._Rolling_stock

only trainsets in service are included, you may be interested in the two newly designed trains currently in testing:
