    It may not work, cornflour is a lot finer than the semolina, which has a more grainy texture.

    Semolina flour is a whet flour, while obviously, cornflour is made from corn. So the texture will be a bit different and I would suspect that the semolina will make the cake heavier and more dense.

    Yes, you should be able to substitute corn flour for semolina flour with little change in the texture or taste of your cake recipe, especially if the recipe calls for wheat flour as well. If your recipe calls for semolina that is not finely ground, then you could substitute cornmeal.

    You can, but I have no idea if you will like the result.

    Semoline is a type of wheat flour .. cornflour comes from corn.  The two act and taste very different.

    It's going to have a really heavy texture and be crumbly
