Starting Crossfit

Hey everyone as like many others I am looking into starting a crossfit program. For quite awhile now I've been doing bodybuilding movements and seeing results just now with my new career lack a lot of the time to put in it(1-2 hours a day 5x a week). And am looking more towards a Crossfit program where I can workout 5x a week and be done in most 45 minutes(Please correct me if I am wrong just a observation I've made). I just have a few questions getting started.
1) Is it really necessary to get a Crossfit Gym memebership?
2) My main goal is to increase mass and strength. Is it possible with simply following Crossfits WODS? Or should I Split it to 1x lift, 2x press, 2x pull?
3) To achieve the mass that the Profesional Crossfiters have do you have to do multiple WODs or can you see mass by just one per day?(Obviously matters on the WOD)

Thank you very much!

No. Usually faster progress but certainly not required.

No your stated goal and CrossFit are not the best match.

No you should follow an already proven strength program combined with a lot of clean food and sleep. See Starting Strength or Grey Skull Linear Progression.

No you need to lift heavy weights and eat a lot of food for a long time.
