D.Is 3M necessary?

3M is just a brand of protective products. Mask is one of its products.
Just like Apple is just a phone brand, there are other phone brands available such as Huawei, XiaoMi, Oppo, Vivo, etc.

E. Delivery time
Disposable mask is the fastest.

F. I also see some masks with valves, what is that?

Usually N100/FFP3 mask ( filter 99.97%) with the valve. This mask is quicker and easier to exhale air than the non-valved type.
But if the wearer is ill, the valve will mean that their out-breath / coughs/sneezes will make their way through the mask, and into the air, without filtering.
