What amplitude does an electromagnetic wave have? We know the wavelength
relates to how much energy the photon has, but what does the amplitude of
the photon indicate? Is the amplitude the same for all electromegnetic
waves?

It is measureable. It relates well with "intensity" and
effective size of the antenna.

How many photon "friends" he has along with him, that have the
same punch (wavelength), and the same time-of-arrival/detection
(period).

No, but it is arrived at by the same physical processes.
