I am going to buy a programmer and test it out. Will the bootloader be erased if hex code is uploaded using programmer? If I want to use back the Arduino IDE, do I have to re-upload the Arduino bootloader back?

Right.
If an Arduino ("chip", et al.) is uploaded via ICSP then the bootloader gets wiped out.
To then upload to the Arduino via USB/serial will require its being re-bootloaded.
You can upload via ICSP from within the Arduino IDE, too.

Yes.
No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)

Just make sure the last hex code file you program is a bootloader.  :)
