There is no one answer- because there is no one gunpowder, and no one bullet weight. Amount of powder is driven mainly by those two factors. If you intend to reload, get a copy of ABCs of Reloading, and read entire book first- excellent reference.

How much gunpowder is in a 9mm bullet?

Technically speaking- none. A bullet is the solid metal part of a cartridge that is fired out of the barrel. How much gunpowder is in a 9mm Parabellum CARTRIDGE will depend on the powder used and the bullet weight.

9mm and 380 both use bullets with a diameter of .355. But the answer to the question you're probably asking is, no, you cannot fire a 9mm parabellum cartridge from a .380 handgun.

No. While there are several different 9mm cartridges, none of them interchange with a 7.62 cartridge. You need to clarify your question- there is no such cartridge as a 7.62 9mm. There are 7.62 pistols, but 9mm is a caliber, not a type of firearm.
