Will this be through already existing places such as Crunchyroll? Will we be seeing more Kodansha manga in the coming weeks on Crunchyroll? Are they going to have their own site where they sell manga? Will it include previously untranslated manga as well or will it just be another way to read the titles Kodansha already has out?

Based on the players involved, I'd deduce that the plan is to create their own platform. I'm incredibly excited about this. I'm curious to see what business model they try to adopt.

Since this is a north america venture, will we see translations to spanish or french?

It's unknown at this time. We'll have to wait and see.

I don't see why they would.

Since it's a Kodansha title, I really hope they can release all of the prior Pastel chapters then do a simulcast for its current monthly chapters.

Is it a coincidence that the day this is announced the manga box app (which has a large number of titles from Kodansha) is no longer functioning?

Does this mean my hopes of finally seeing Moyashimon again released in English are still not totally dashed? Or are they just so busy with Maria the Virgin Witch that they've completely forgotten about it?

You'd think that a series that won the Kodansha Manga Award in 2008 and that has two anime seasons would get more recognition.
