[i]1. does the pcb have trace

1. does the pcb have traces on both sides?

Yes.

2. can i use the pcb layout included to make a pcb using this method: http://www.5bears.com/pcb.htm

If you mean the pcb layout of the Replica 1 that's included with Apple I Replica Creation, I don't see why not.

3. do you have the pcb layout for a serial card, or a cassette tape interface card?

I don't believe Vince has released the files for the serial card. The only cassette interface reporduction I've seen is by obtronix. I don't think he's released the pcb layout.

Yes. It's got the schematics

Yes. It's got the schematics, the pcb files, and all the tools you need to edit them (on the Mac).

Yes. The red lines are the top trace; the blue lines are the bottom.

You can turn layers on and off by going to the Layout menu and choosing "Set Visible Layers…"
