SMF Traveler Help DISCUSSION

I have another question about flying, once again it’s my first time and I am a teen, so what would I have to bring in order to fly because I was told that I don’t need a passport, that all I need is my student i.d from the school I’m attending, because I am flying from California to Arizona.
Hi I just had a question about bags/luggage, this will be my first time flying on a plane and I heard that they charge for each luggage, is that true if so how much is it ?
Are there luggage carts for purchase on the sidewalk at Terminal B departure area. If yes, are they near JetBlue or Southwest? I have 3 large luggage and travelling internationally, so I have to checkin inside at the counter and I know there are no porters. I hope there are luggage carts as I am traveling alone.

Thank you
I am flying out of SMF, I will be taking the Amtrak train to Sacramento to 401 I Street, 95841: Once I arrive there, what is the distance to SMF, what would you suggest as the best mode of transportation to the airport from there? thank you!
It is 10 miles from SMF. The 428 bus goes directly between them but only goes once every hour, or you can use Uber or Lyft.
Is there a place designated for relieving a service animal at and??
I would like to park a car at SMF short-term parking for a flight out and leave the car key and parking space number for another passenger coming in to SMF to pick up. Can I do that at Baggage Claim? Is there a charge?
No, I've never heard of anywhere that will do that for you. you should get a second key to the car and mail it to the person and then text or email them the parking location once it's parked.
