    Personally I would stick with snow leopard (10.6.x) on that machine as lion was a big of a dog. If your going to run lion or need to run lion for a reason then invest in a cheap ssd to speed things up.

    Pinyin is not a problem look for to "System Preferences - Languages & Region" look for the + and add in Chinese

    You should then have new menu icon (top of the display) which will allow you to switch between English and PinYin. If you don't see untying in the menu go back to "System Preferences - Languages & Region" select "Keyboard Preferences" then "Input Sources"and check the Menu Bar box.

    For the WiFi try your Mac with different wireless routers and see if it behaves the same, Mac`s can be finicky about the routers they connect with. Beyond you will need to provide more information on the set up.

    So that you prefer that I just upgrade to 10.6.x is much more suitable for 10.7.x ?? Well, i got no reason I just want to able to upgrade software and download some plug in, example Adobe Flash Player, cause i notice a lot software need at least 10.6 for install. So I don't know that I need to upgrade to maximum or don't.

    There's no such thing as a stupid question. Asking questions is a noble action.

    I would recommend 10.6.8 also (instead of 10.7.5).

    Very clean-running version of the Mac OS.

    Mkv is a container and the contents can use a number of different codecs. So one mkv can be different to another.

    http://www.matroska.org/technical/whatis/index.html

    Have a search for mediainfo, it's a Mac app that will tell you what codec is used in a file.
