> online, if TV screen is offline it will show existing content.
> - It will store any videos and images in TV's storage and load from TV
> instead of servers. So it is like caching for videos and images and html
> - html pages from my server will contain also js code (will be used for
> Animations ), so it should be able to run it separately from Tizen's js.
> - Application will save cached html page with media files in TV screen
> and user can view previous states of the page.

No Tizen TV's allow native apps... so I think that narrows your choice down.
That's a policy decision of Samsung's TV division. So the rest is moot.

I'm not a web dev... so ... no. :)
