    No, you just get the colour of your choice.

    It works the same way no matter what land you put it on.

    Same reason it doesn't work in the first. Abundant Growth grants the land an additional ability, to tap for any colour. It doesn't make one mana in addition to its regular mana.

    No, you're looking at it wrong. Glimmervoid doesn't have "T: Add two mana of any color to you mana pool", and nothing about Abundant Growth implies that it does anything remotely close to that.

    Abundant Growth on Glimmervoid gives you a land with the following:

    "T: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool."
    "T: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool."

    Notice anything, well, identical about those two mana abilities? That's because they are, for all intents and purposes, the same exact mana ability. Just as in the case of EVERY card with multiple activated abilities, you can only activate one of these abilities at a time.

    If you activate one of Glimmervoid's abilities, you can't activate the other one. Why not? Because you already tapped it to activate the first ability.

    For the ability to work in the way you want, Abundant Growth would have to say something like "When enchanted land is tapped for mana, add one mana of any color to your mana pool."

    It does not say that, and so that is not how it works. That's about as clear as I can make it for you. If you still need additional help understanding this, feel free to let us know.

    Yes. You'll draw a card, but your opponent can then get mana of any colour from that land.
