Q1: If someone said, "How's it hangin?", how shoud I respond?
Can I say, "I am good. Thanks. How's it hangin"?
Q2: Is it usually as a greeting between men but not that common between women?

I have never, ever heard women exchange this expression.
I find it a bit vulgar. Just a tiny bit. But still a bit.
The vulgarity comes from the reference to just what it is that is "hanging."
All hell will break lose, if the receptionist in my company finds out about 'how it's hanging'!
The wall behind her desk is decorated with a painting/artwork, which is changed every now and then. Whenever there is a change, the peon and the lady ask every passerby, 'how is it hanging' and then tilt the frame a bit.
