Your access level may be a big problem here.
The prtconf command, if you are alowed to run it, will give most of what you want.

It depends if its an LPARed server or a standalone one. Are you using VIO or not.

For a standalone server
1,3,4 can be obtained from lsattr -El sys0
2 is from getconf DISK_SIZE /dev/hdiskx
5 is lslpp (I use -Lc) if exporting data else where.

1.3.4. prtoconf --meny details
2. bootinfo -s hdisk1
5. lslpp -l
