    Yes. It does. It reflects and emits radiation in the infrared wavelengths. 

    The Moon's surface emits 200 times the?amount of radiation the?Earth's surface emits because the Moon does not have a global magnetic field like Earth has. The Moon still has a 30 kilometer tick part of the mantle that has not completely crystallized.

    Well technically yes, but it is pretty harmless.  It is high energy radiation, and highly powerful radiation that is dangerous.

    There is radiation to a small degree everywhere.

    The moon only reflect the light of the sun at the night time to earth.

    Yes, but the term "radiation" is extremely general.

    It has elements that emit radioactivity, just like any object.  But it is no more radioactive than the Earth.

    Just a little bit, it is awful cold on its dark side.

    The day side warms increasing radiation a bit.

    Nothing at all like a sun or hot stellar object.

    The moon has more surface radiation than the Earth because meteors fall upon it and some of them are radioactive.

    Depends what you mean by "have radiation."

    If you mean, "is there a lot of radiation on the moon?" then the answer is "yes - quite a lot."

    If you mean, "does the moon produce radiation itself?" then the answer is "not really."
