View topic - difference between hiranga and kanji
Sometimes hiragana is used to tell which meaning the kanji is using. AKA furigana.
I think you have that backwards. Furigana is used to show the pronunciation of a word. Kanji in of itself shows the meaning.

if they write in all kana, they will use spaces between words.
My pen-pal still writes to me in mostly kana, with a couple kanji that I've told him I know, and he includes spaces.
Your pen-pal probably includes spaces just to make it easier for you. I'm sure if he was writing to another Nihonjin, there would be no spaces.
