    I have seen many designer just forget to add Sitemap in the website. I mean, Sitemap is a necessary thing to have on a website, Google itself recommend it.

    Sitemaps are not required but they can be quite helpful. If you have multi-level navigation spiders may have difficulty following all the links a sitemap acts as a roadmap telling search engines where the pages are. You can use a free tool like GSiteCrawler to automatically generate a sitemap for you.

    First thing, after I create a website is to add a XML sitemap and submit it to google.

    Yes sitemap is really important for the site as sigtemap is used as navigation purpose by the visitors. If your site contains multiple pages with largely identical content, there are a number of ways you can indicate your preferred URL to Google. This helps visitors and search engine bots find pages on site. A sitemap is an XML file that contains a list of site URLs and related attributes detailing what should be indexed within a specific site. It must be UTF-8 encoded.

    If you have a sitemap, you don't have to list all your pages, but it's good to list the pages you consider important. And one of your most important pages is your homepage.
    More important than sitemaps is getting other sites to link to you. Better to have search engines find a link to your site, on another site, than to have to tell them about the page in your sitemap. The sitemap is to have good internal link paths through your site, so search engines can find all the pages.

    Yes sitemnap is really impoirtant for the site as Site map is graphical demonstration of architecture of web site. Sitemaps give way for Web sites to specify what pages in site must be indexed and what latest content included.

    Yes sitemap should be present in the website as sitemap provides the way of navigating the entire site. Also it helps visitors and search engine bots find pages on site. It gives the contact channel between search engine and site.

    It depends if you mean a text site map or site map for search engines. A text map is a good way to help get all your content indexed but - you have to remember to update it as content changes!
