Welcome Kilgoreji

you will get many different answers, but we all love each other for our differences...

these are my personal answers,

here I would like to know the course of action of a Sikh
all day?
to attempt to live truthfully, this means no intoxicents for pleasurable purposes, honesty, hard work, and to look out for each and every person or being you come across. If a being you come across serves you better dead, so be it, but treat that being with respect.

I actually asked to be followed as driving every day life has a Sikh
prayer, do not drink alcohol, ......?
no that is correct, the Sikh way is not to drink alcohol, although drinking alcohol, unfortunately, is what Sikhsim is quite famous for!

is to be obligé wore a turban ?
absolutely not, in my view, the turban should not be disrespected and worn by those who feel obliged to, it should be worn with dignity, it should be an expression of love and a show to society that ' I am a Sikh, I am here to help'

what is the Khalsa ?
the pinnacle of Sikhism, the elite corp, the best of the best, it is those who take truth very seriously, unfortunately, anyone these days can call themselves Khalsa..

then we should vegetarian beings ?
no, Sikhism is a way of life, a way to conduct yourself, it does not intrude into meat eating
