If you mean that one of your hives swarmed, and you have a new queen in the group left behind, I would imagine you would see eggs around the end of July or early August.

Anywhere from 15-25 days. I would suspect closer to 2.5-3 weeks.

Take the normal time it takes for a new queen from egg minus a week.

It has been two weeks now and no eggs...but I spotted the queen. What should a hive look like right after a swarm? No eggs...or brood and not much honey?

I had a nuc requeen and I found small larvae in a small patch about the size of your palm at 2 1/2 weeks. :)

There is no set way that they will look, it can vary, you could find any of the things you mentioned or none at all. If you found the queen then your hive should be okay. Check again at 3 weeks I am sure she will have a surprise waiting for you. :)
