You know that nobody would say like this;) We normally omit the pronoun - just like in Spanish, so it'll be simply: Mówię po polsku.

one question: do we absolutely have to say: i speak IN ***, using the prep. IN in the languages?

with or without IN: i think when using the prep, we are emphasizing the particular language we are speaking in, while without it we are simply stating the fact that we have the ability to speak a certain language.

italiano: Parlo l'italiano. "Io" means "I" in English and the word "parlo" means "I speak". The verb "to speak" is parlare, so when using the word "parlo" there is usually no need to have an "Io" before the word, because "parlo" shows that one already speaks. Parla-he she, you speak(s). Parliamo-we speak. Parlano-they speak.

you can say
انا اتكلم عربية
ana(I) atakalam(I speak) arabeyah(Arabic)

or you can just say
اتكلم عربية
atakalam(I speak) arabeyah(Arabic)

since this isn't a nominal sentence the subject (ana=I) is not necessarily needed.

In my Italian class was a fluent Catalan speaker who said Catalan was half-way between Italian and Spanish, so they are very similiar.

They are very similar yes.. but it's a little easier for a spanish to understand an italian than viceversa.
