What is the tension essentially? Force, pressure, distance, speed, mass, or acceleration?

Tension is having to speak to your wife, that's pressure, it can also be force

Tension is something that is being stretched.if a rope is anchored and we try to stretch it from the other end we need to push with our feet as we hold it. Hence there is no pull without a push. The amount of energy used during the stretch is proportional to the power applied and the time we use.
Power is defined as the product of the force and how fast the force is made to move.

A stretched rope (wire, bar, stick, etc) is under tension throughout its length and is often considered to exert the same magnitude of FORCE on the objects to which it is attached at each end. (If the rope is vertical, you may need to consider the weight of the rope itself.)

tension is a force measured in N or lb force

Force. The only thing to consider is how the object might change physical shape, which is dynamics. Tension is usually considered static.. So, that leaves out acceleration, distance, speed, mass. Those are all orthogonal.

If you pull on the two ends of a bar, you are creating tension in the bar, it is the force that is opposing the force you are applying to pull the bar apart.
If you push on the two ends of a bar, you are creating compression in the bar. It's the same in tension, just the opposite direction and is opposing your attempt to crush the bar.

tension is force, and has units of Newtons (or pounds-force)
