12 double mastery.

It's the same contest, so you wouldn't get a new pool. (IMO going back to the mule is not leaving the contest and re-entering it, other narrators may vary.)

If you loan all your AP you are at 0 and unable to act further in this contest. People generally don't loan all their AP for this reason, unless the situation warrants it (e.g. an issue at the clan moot where they stand up and say their piece in support of the lawspeaker they're loaning AP to, then sit down).

I think that you can -- but not the same AP (i.e. if you have 12 and loan 6, you can loan another 6 later). The AP loan is just one round's action.
