Welcome!

1. There are several cactus that look similar with the very common name "San Pedro Cactus". Your's does not look like one of them.

2. You can use some pruners or wire cutters to cut the spines that are poking their neighbors.

3. I'm not sure what the orange spots are. It could be as simple as sun burn from water spots or the beginning of something more serious. If the orange spots are hard, I wouldn't worry about them. If they are soft, get back to us.

As you just bought this plant yesterday, if you are unhappy with it, I would consider taking it back and getting a refund or replacement. You want a plant with the name Echinopsis pachanoi or Trichocereus pachanoi.

Your English is fine - please don't worry about it.

Howdy there Kap 😀
Your English isnt bad buddy. Your just about perfect. 👍👍😀😀😀

Now, Your Catus !
I know, some, but not all about them.

Those orange spots, could be virus or something, that might be cured with rubbing alcohol, applied with a cotton swab. It won't hurt plant.

One picture looks like, a bug chewed on it, or physical damage. Not to worry about.

Make sure pot has drain hole.
Get those dog-gone rocks, out of pot, so soil can dry out faster.
Let soil dry completely, before you water. Use a bamboo BBQ skewer, and stick it down to bottom of pot, when skewer comes out dry ! Only then water. Don't feel sorry for her, and water, before then, or you'll kill her. By drounding !
She'll start to shrivel, if she really needs a drink.
When, she starts to shrivel, is really a good guage to figure out how often to water her. 👍

More replies will be on the way for you.👍

Treating with alcohol won't kill a plant virus. But that doesn't look like a virus anyway.

I already suggested sunburn or the beginning of rot.

I have never seen spines like that on E. pachanoi - my guess would be that you have Trichocereus peruvianus.
