Hi dear banami
1. You should use present simple because it shows a habit.
2.It can be both.If it is temporary, you should use present continuous. If it is permanent, you should use present simple.
3.The present simple one is correct. " Love" is a state verb and it is not used in the progressive form.
4. The continuous one is correct because it is happening right on the spot.Now I am calling to tell you...
5. The present simple one is correct because it is a fact.We use present simple to talk about facts , habits and permanent actions.
