Set me on the right track with my first hoya

(1) Can you ID this hoya?

(2) Received this hoya from a friend a month or so ago. She grows her houseplants in soil. She propagated this one from her original plant. She doesn't fertilize, but adds some new soil each year. She says her original plant used to flower but hasn't flowered in years. She wonders why. So do I!

(3) I am wondering if I should repot this plant. From what I am reading, hoya like chunkier soil, good drainage? Also wondering whether I should just trim the long stems? How many stems does one want in a pot to make a fuller look? I know that these plants can be staked to grow on something or to be supported. I was thinking of having it as a hanging plant.
