What you said would have been correct, IF BS for 6v6 is double which unfortunately is not. Or you may as well say22 double, 222 double , 2222 double again

Try 7 v 6. As for 22, split, 222, split again. Spanish, or for that matter, Pontoon, have different basic strategies than Blackjack. If you use Blackjack basic for Pontoon, you’ll get slaughtered.

The following seems to be BS for Pontoon where does it say 6v6 or 6v7 you double?

Try Katrina's book H17 table 3.4. Think you’re looking at S17 strategy.

However the many I referenced they all have no double on 8 or less meaning I have no idea why three boxes for doubling are there.

Correct.

Ok that is answered but how about the boxes printed for everyone to allow doubling for three times when BS if you follow simply does not call for it?

The answer is likely very simple - likely something to do between H17 and S17.
in any event, the answers to all of your questions

The answer is that there is a basic strategy for it. You just need to find the right one. Katarina Walker's book has basic strategies for a wide variety of Pontoon rule sets. I googled "wizard of adds pontoon" but he does not appear to discuss redoubling.

MGP's CA is also a very useful tool to calculate Basic Strategy for both Blackjack and Pontoon. Correct configuration is essential for accurate results which will answer most of the above questions.
