1)- I am doing my thesis work in wind turbine blade fatigue analysis. I create a blade model with shell elements and assign materials and sectional properties in ansys workbench "ACP (pre)." Now I want to extract the geometrical information of the blade section (e.g., centroid, shear center, flexural center, Moment of inertia) in a longitudinal direction at a different blade length. Can I get such information in ansys workbench, where I have a complete model with sectional properties?
2)- can I extract a section of my model as a separate ansys file, with assigned materials properties (as shown in the attached figure)?
3)- If I got the above-mentioned point locations in my model, how can I define these points as remote points to assign calculated resultant forces as a remote force to these points?
Any clues or guidance you can give me will be beneficial to proceed further in my work.

I am not sure if you will get all the information in MEchanical. Try importing the model from ACP into Mechanical and then you get some of the required information. Please see if the following video is of help to you:
