Yes, your partner will need to prove Functional English - https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/189- (click on 'Follow these steps'; scroll down to 'Gather your documents ' Documents for dependents 18 or older'; in the pop up you'll see the requirement and a link to https://www.border.gov.au/about/corp...tional-english)

You will both be asked by the case officer to get police and medicals towards the end of processing.

I had to look to see your occupation. By 'some of my skills assessment results' I assume you mean you've passed the paper part and will progress to the practical.

You cannot lodge an EOI until you have a valid skills assessment, which you don't have. Points are awarded for age, and skill select adjust them as you get older, so it will be time of invite where you age counts.

As said already, it's age at time of invite but as you will not turn 33 until next May I doubt it will be an issue providing you get through IELTS okay

EDIT - on the IELTS front, make sure you practice so you don't lose marks for silly mistakes (lose / loose eg)
