I was just wondering. I'm a little confused with the exact mechanics of how a bump key works. If I had a key that say went to my house and I had a friends key. If all the cuts in his key are lower than the pins to my house lock could I use his key to bump my lock?

No. All pins have to be struck at the same time and with the same amount of energy, so ideally the cuts all need to be the same and the same pitch as the lock pins.

Yes, that's what I am also thinking, all pins need to be stuck same time with the same force.
