I have a late model Mercury Pro Kicker 9.9 gathering dust and taking up space in my garage. How do I tell if it’s got power start and trim? I’ve never run the thing and know next to nothing about outboards.

It will have a push start button on it, or you can take the cowling off and see if there's a starter that engages into the flywheel. The power tilt/trim will have a separate button/switch and you'll see the hydraulic piston on the mount the raises lowers the the engine.

Power Tilt/trim: Does it have this (or something similar):

Starter: Does it have this under the cowling, it should be next to the flywheel?

In most cases, if the cowl is labeled "Pro Kicker", it's an electric start, with power trim/tilt. If the cowl was was swapped or relabeled, not so much. Power T/T is what makes it a "Pro Kicker"
