1. Why is it that sometimes I work with a bridge and I do not have the opportunity to do earthquake tests?

Only if you don't use "Start Game" (and I guess Tutorial) you can do custom earthquake tests.

2. What is the purpose of phases?

Mainly for drawbridges and, well, multiple vehicle phases. A train bridge might have:
- Train comes from left to right.
- Train comes from right to left.
A drawbridge might have:
- Cars driving over bridge.
- Drawbridge up.
- Ship going under bridge.
- Drawbridge down.
- Cars driving over bridge.

3. I do not see what the "Manual" or "User Control" functions do. What are they for? Seems to me "manual" should be the same as "user control."

Manual phase gives you control over phases and hydraulics. User control lets you control the vehicles (select one and drive using WASD, IIRC). If you use user control you'll probably also want manual phase, because it doesn't register that you have driven to the end point and thus leaves you in the first phase.
I rarely check this forum anymore. Feel free to send me a PM if you want my attention.
