Acts2:37: Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39: For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40: And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation

>Another question-- of all i read (unless i missed it) there is no clear indication of when is the best time to do this-

Because it's an art, not a science.  You need enough bees (which will change by time of year) and enough stores (which is easiest during a flow) and enough time for the split to build up enough to get through the winter.  Actually, if you read the  FAQs at the bottom you will see things like "how early..." etc.

>Another simple question-- why couldnt hobby beek have a 3deep colony--ie huge colony-- will the bees swarm if they have plenty of space?

Yes, the hive wants to  reproduce and will given the opportunity...
