Are questions during debate on a motion treated the same as arguments for and against the motion?

No. Asking a question is not counted as speaking in debate.

If not, are there rules about them such as how often the same person can ask a question?

There are rules about asking questions, which are discussed in RONR (12th ed.) 33:3-10. There are two motions for different types of questions. A Parliamentary Inquiry is a question about parliamentary procedure, and a Request for Information is a question about anything else.

There are no limits on how many questions a person may ask.
