Question Gopher Snake Questions

I generally don't post in forums but I felt there were some questions I needed answered about my gopher snake. My dad brought me a gopher snake home almost 10 years ago now (can't believe its been that long) and I've always been paranoid about taking care of it right. (not sure of sex) My dad generally is who handled it through the years because I lacked self confidence but I'm over that. So I have a few questions about it:
How do I determine sex? Is it similar to a hognose where its obvious?
How big should a 10 year old gopher snake be?
Is it normal for a snake to make small hissing noises when handling? I'm worried about RI, but it never makes those noises in the tank.
Should a snake be taken to a vet regularly?
I never considered myself a reptile collector but I'm going to have to add a hognose snake soon because they are just so adorable.
Sorry for the novel but I've never gotten any good answers from my local reptile shops.
