Someone has created a fake FaceBook account of mine using my picture. That person has also sent friend requests to many of my friends. How can I stop that person from doing so? And how can I find out who that person is?

    You can report that person by reporting to Facebook the fake Facebook account.
    Go to the profile page and you should see a gear icon. Click on 'Report/Block' and click on 'Report user's account' and click on 'This timeline is using a fake name'. You can also go to your privacy settings to disable public viewing of your friends' list.
