German help: Oktoberfest

I have oral presentation next week and I choose to talk about Oktoberfest, there’s some word I don’t know how to pronounce and don’t know exactly it means. Can anybody help me please?

1.How to pronounce ‘Theresienwiese’? And in this sentence ‘…Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (namesake of the Theresienwiese festival grounds)’ Is it mean that the festival ground named after her name or something like that? I’m sorry, apart from German, my English is bad too. :(

2.How to pronounce ‘d’Wiesn’? And what does it mean? I found it from this sentence ‘The festival is held on an area named the Theresienwiese (field, or meadow, of Therese), often called d’ Wiesn for short.’

3.How to pronounce ‘käsespätzle’? In this sentence ‘…käsespätzle (cheese noodles)’. I wonder how it looks like and how to cook it.

4.How to pronounce ‘Äpfelpfannenkuchen’?

5.How to pronounce ‘Therese’? In this sentence ‘…Princess Therese’.

6.How to pronounce and where is it in Germany, ‘Saxe-Hildburghausen’?

7.How to pronounce and is there a word in English of ‘Sennerhut’?

Vielen dank!
