Help needed for Shipping and MPN attributes
We have two different questions:
1. How do we create MPN? Can we create it manually, a unique one for each product?
2. How to define attributes if the same product is delivered in different weights with different shipping charges?
We will appreciate your time and help.

(1) mpn cannot be created by merchants.
creating or self-assigning mpn or any global-trade-data (mpn, gtin, brand)
is grounds for disapproval or suspension from the program, at any time.
global-trade-data (mpn, gtin, brand) must be identical across all merchants
selling the item and must be assigned by a brand-manufacturer to the exact
item being sold.
if required, proper, global-trade-data currently exists
then the proper global-trade-data must be submitted.
otherwise, if the proper, required, global-trade-data does not currently exist
simply do not submit any global-trade-data (mpn, gtin, brand) for the item --
and then submit an identifier_exists attribute with a value of FALSE
google never requires the creation of any global-trade-data --
mpn, gtin, brand -- if the valid data does not currently exist.
(2) if the same item is sold in different weights then
either submit only one of the item-offers or submit
each of the variants as a separate item-offer.
each variant item-offer submitted must have an identical item_group_id
value and at least one other variant attribute -- e.g. size (weight) -- for
all items in the variant group.
each (variant) item-offer would also have separate shipping details --
either by using account-settings and a shipping_label or a separate
shipping attribute in the feed.
a shipping_weight attribute with a valid value --
number, space, and supported unit -- per item
is also required if shipping is based on weight; e.g.
