if ho-oh kills herself because she has run out of PP and uses struggle, will she be gone forever and my chance is then lost?

Gen 2 and 3 (if you somehow have the event for gen 3, of course): yes.
Starting on Platinum, all unique encounters will respawn after you beat the E4. This includes Heartgold Soulsilver.
Also never found anyone mentioning Ho-oh as a female, interesting.

It’s your copy.

You're probably on the Battle Subway. It's a battle facility, it's not actually a story element (unless I'm forgetting a story element of BW2). After each battle you are given the chance to stop, or when you lose, or when you beat like 7 people in a row I think. Either way, you should be able to exit soon. Then just leave the building and go as you please.

any advice to catch Groudon (probably the hardest of all since he just goes to sleep and gets his health all back)
what i've figured myself
legendaries (birds and mewtwo ive got some of them) have pressure which uses up the opponents moves quicker
and some pokemon learn worry seed (stops the opponent from sleeping)
anything else that comes in handy?

Do you have any Pokemon that can learn Wake-Up Slap? Like Rest it has 10 PP, so just use it every time Groudon uses Rest until it runs out of PP. Plus you'll do double damage, it has neutral coverage, and wakes Groudon up (so you can give it a different status condition)

You could use Imprison with a Pokémon who also knows Rest. Imprison stops the target (and the entire opposing team, but that's not important here) from using any move that the user also knows, and doesn't wear off until the user leaves battle. Ralts learns Imprison at level 31 and its evolutions at 33 while the TM for Rest is in Lilycove City.

Plus the Ralts line can learn Hypnosis, so you can put Groudon to sleep on your own time without it getting to heal.

how do i get the secret key in platinum for the team galatic base?
It's an event-only items and the promotion for it has ended years ago, so now the only way to obtain it is by hacking. Alternatively, the Japanese wondercard could be shared with up to 5 other players, but I doubt you'll be able to find someone to do that for you (and I'm also not sure if it's only between Japanese copies, or if they can be shared with all copies as long as the original wondercard is Japanese)

They both learn those respective moves naturally, so just level them up for a while and the option to learn those moves will arise soon enough.

You also have the Dex, right? And I can't find confirmation if it's a requirement, but you might try beating your first Gym. At the least it should firmly get you out of the tutorial stage of the game
