Yep, Michael Jordan experiences a few moments of zero-G before smacking into the floor after each jump, although it is not the same type of weightlessness.
If you were aboard a Low Earth Orbiting satellite then you would experience no gravity (except some very slight tidal force) providing, as the name suggests, it was in a stable orbit. From the frame of someone on the earth the satellite would be experiencing 9m/s/s as that would be the centripetal acceleration due to the earth's gravity.
Well the pressure is just the same as here on the ground, 14.7 psi. And the composition is just the same as air.
