That is a lot of questions, and most of them you can find yourself with a few google searches and visiting the sites you mention. But I can give you a basic rundown...

WGU charges around $4,000 USD per term for its master's degree programs. Most people complete a master's degree in 3-4 terms, but if you're studying a subject area you're already familiar with, you can accelerate and complete in 1-2 terms. So you're looking at $4,000-$16,000 USD depending on how quickly you can move through the material.

WGU is competency-based and courses are ungraded so there is no GPA. However, for transfer purposes, WGU suggests that every course passed is equivalent to a "B", or a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. However, it is up to the destination school to determine if they accept that GPA equivalency or not.

That means that WGU doesn't just let anyone into their MS in Data Analytics program. What you're quoting are the entry requirements. So you'll need an IS-based bachelor's degree, or a Udacity nanodegree in data analytics, or an Oracle SQL, Oracle BI, or SAS certification earned within the last 5 years to be approved to enter that program.

There are tons of other online master's degrees. However, most of them are more of a traditional college format where each class takes between 8 and 16 weeks to complete (depending on the school and whether it is semester- or quarter-based) and you'll typically have lectures, assignments, and exams along the way just like someone would who was on-campus. This usually means there is no accelerating, so you're looking at 18-months to 3-years to complete most online master's degree programs.

Besides WGU there are other competency-based master's programs, of course. The most popular schools that offer competency-based options include NAU (Northern Arizona University), Purdue Global, Walden University, Capella University, and Brandman University. Each of them has their own approach, but all operate somewhat similar to WGU in that you complete papers (and/or exams) to demonstrate competency rather than attend traditional classes.

No, the Georgia Tech OL programs are not competency-based. They are online, traditional programs that are delivered in an online format. You still have to attend classes/lectures and do coursework along the way just like students who are on-campus. That is a 2-3 year program just like their on-campus version.

For the NAU competency-based online MS in Computer Information Technology (MS CIT) there are 4 areas of emphasis that you can specialize in as part of the degree. These are:
  • Data Analytics
  • Mobile and Web Application Development
  • Project Management
  • Information Security & Assurance

I'm not sure what you're asking here. None of the big 3 offer competency-based master's programs.

I think that covers what you asked. You can find out more about any of these programs by visiting the individual college websites directly.

You can get a letter of recommendation from the professor and the school, for personal or professional reasons. However, it seems you're wanting to use these letters of recommendation for immigration purposes which WILL NOT work. These BIG 3/WGU schools don't have real campuses for you to take classes at, so, that won't really work...
