A doctors note when a child is sick or has an appointment is considered an excused day and is not part of the 18 unexcused days.

Just speak with the teacher ahead of time. Official policy is that it is an unexcused absence. But teachers and schools have allowed it. I have, on a couple of occasions, taken my girls out of school for a day or two, and their mother took them out 1 week before holiday break last year so they could see relatives abroad.

It will depend on the teacher, and possibly if the student is otherwise doing well. But there are plenty of parents who take their kids out for a week or so. Just ask and make sure it's addressed ahead of time.

This statement might be more aspirational than reality. Certainly when it comes to the district and their regulations.

If a child accrues five days of unexcused absences in a given marking period (as in the case of the example by the OP) that student could face serious consequences.

From the JC BOE:
Students in grades K-8 who accrue (18) days of unexcused absences in one school year and students in grades 9- 12 who are absent 18 school days from a full year course (5 to 20 credits); 9 school days from a semester course (5 credits); or 5 school days from a marking period course (2.5 credits) may be considered ineligible for promotion to the next grade and for participation in extracurricular activities/athletics and/or magnet programs.

I have not, but many friends have. It's considered a non-excused absence. Your child will most likely need to make-up homework assignments and the tests they missed. One friend had the teacher give them the assignments prior to the vacation. Speak with the teacher....Family vacations are so important and learning doesn't just happen in a classroom. Most teachers get that.
