My friend just found a chihuahua puppy in a dumpster... its TINY and we dont know what to feed it until she can take it to the vet this afternoon.
Would it be okay to give it breast milk? I have plenty of that haha

Yes. I'm sure it would do that puppy a world of good.

Yes, as long as he doesn't get it straight from the tap.

 If the puppy is young enough to still need milk she needs to get a milk replacer but she might try wet food.  I doubt breast milk would hurt the pup but I can't see being the best choice either.

maybe? hell, I don't know. As long as it's pumped and not from the tap? THAT would be weird lmao.

My friend has bottle fed quite a few kittens that lost their mothers, she got kitten formula at a pet supply store, and I think she said she saw some at walmart too.

Yes. That would be fine until you see the vet. Then you can get puppy formula or wet puppy food mixed with warm water. You can also do the meat baby food mixed with warm water if you have some on hand.

If humans can drink milk from a cow I'm sure a puppy can drink milk from a human

Should be ok. I once hand expressed for a pup that was abandoned by its mom, unfortunately the pup died but it was already in bad shape. Good luck with your pup.
