Hi,
I will be travelling in August 2017 from India to Canada and my connecting flight is from Amsterdam schiphol(waitng time 4 hours).Do i require visa for Amsterdam ? Please suggest

If you hold a valid visa for Canada you are exempted from needing an Airport Transit Visa unless your flights are on two separate reservations.
When I land in Amsterdam from California and collect my luggage, where do I go to check into my flight with Air Malta? This is not a connecting flight, how much time will I need and do I need to go through customs again?
You won't have to go through customs again. You will arrive, go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags with Air Malta on the check-in level, then go through security. You'll want at least 2-3 hours.
