Am I missing something obvious here or can you just use FaceTime Audio? Obviously it won't work if you use the keypad, but you can call from anywhere you have their contact card (Contacts, Phone, Messages, FaceTime, even Mail...) You did say both parties have iDevices, right?

I don't know of any way to force a call to use data instead of cellular minutes, or everyone would be doing it. One option you have is to enable Wi-Fi calling. If you are logged into a wi-fi network, you can make calls using the wi-fi. Go to Settings > Phone > Calls: Wi-Fi Calling and switch it to ON.

If your friend turned off iMessage or turned off Read Receipts, then you won't get the Read notification. If they're using a beta of iOS 10, they can turn off Read Receipts for individual contacts. Also, as you suggested, if the friend decided to block you, you won't see the notifications, either. EDIT: As indicated in the comments, you will see the ...

I'm not entirely sure you understand what Messages is meant to be used for. Messages is not an email client. You can, however, receive Messages at your iCloud email and Gmail accounts.
