Anyone here have a experience keeping bumblebees?

I am going to try to attract bumble bees to some boxes next spring to sell to some greenhouses nearby and i cant find much information on "bumblebeekeeping" online.

So i have few questions i was hoping someone on here could answer

Is it possible to split a bumblebee hive like a honeybee hive?
Does the queen hibernate in the hive that it established during the summer?
What is the optimal size of boxes for their hives?
Can i do something to increase my changes of a queen accepting the nesting box?
