What is the role of a BA ( not Sr.Ba) during pre prject?
As opposed to functional requirements which are things that the system must do, Non-functional requirements are conditions under which the system must meet those functional requirements. In other words, they are qualities that a system must have.

E.g. - security requirements, scalability requirements, capacity requirements, availability requirements etc
Pretty much what everyone mentioned before, depending on the situation, you can employ any of these,
Interviews, surveys, questionnaires, workshops, document analysis, focus groups, reverse engineering, brainstorming and many more situational techniques
During dev - Oraganize JADs, clear queries from dev, Update use manuals and RTM, conduct status meetings with tech team and client, Removes roadblocks impeding the dev team, conduct daily stand ups ( if SCRUM)

During testing - Prep or assist in creating test cases, perform testing, prep client for UAT, Updates user manuals & RTM, Get sign off from client on the client project acceptance form

As per my understanding -

An SME is a subject matter expert. This person usually has extensive working experience in that domain and is usually consulted when coming up with requirements and solutions

A SPOC is the Single point of contact, who basically acts as a bridge between two business units or organizations. On the client's side, an SPOC would have thorough knowledge of organizational goals, business rules and stakeholders.
This is typically my approach ( keeping in mind the step mentioned in the book - i.e., dont model databases, tech, brand names etc)

compile actors and actions into a list. Then, you draw connectors between actors and actions. What you end up with, is a clear visual representation of the relationship between actors and actions. It's really easy after this.

The difficulty lies in identifying the actions and actors without missing anything.

AS per my understanding -

A Primary actor is  one who uses the system to achieve a goal. This could be an end user or an admin or anyone for whom the system was developed.
Secondary actor is one who assists the primary actor in achieving said goal. This can be a person, or a bank, or a printer.
