i finally got my equipment (vessel barell spoon syphon hidrometer etc). it was a good priced one from wilkinsons so yeah. my fermentation vessel does not have a hole for the airbubbler is that a problem? i saw some vessels without the bubbler ..

It will be a problem if you try to ferment in a sealed container. Drill a hole and get a rubber stopper thing (forgot what they’re called) to put your airlock in

what if my kit does not fulfill the vessel? is it a problem to put 10 liters on a 20 liters fermantation vessel?

No problem at all as long as you plan to package it soon after fermentation finishes.

What is the problem of leaving a small volume in a large container? Would there be a problem say if you were to put 10litres in a 20litre secondary vessel?

Did you take hydrometer readings?

yes.. potential alcohol = 0 ,approx. sugar per liter = 60, specific grav = 20 ....

i dont know it seems strange.. i had 2 days o fermentation on the second and fourth day.. there are bubbles on the cap of my vessel and it is a bit boosted.. when i press it the airlock makes bubbles.. is it wrong to do it? is it bad to have bubbles on the top of it?
