This looks like a mite to me.

I agree. Looks to be a Red Velvet Mite in the Allothrombium genus.

Looks like a mite or a tick tbh, but it can be a crab spider too

The length of the legs doesn’t look consistent with a Thomisidae or a Philodromidae.

You’re welcome. I know absolutely nothing about Arachnids other than spiders, but the ID suggested by looks great to me.

I think so. I’m not sure about the size. There are tiny red mites that are parasites on spiders. Sometimes we get photos of the parasitised spiders.
