Is it only chassidim that have this minhag?

Anyone non-chassidish does it?

Reread the first page. Not only chassidim do it.

Women dip for the same reason men do on erev yk - to enter the holiest day of the year in a state of purity. It's kind of obvious why we do it.

Afaik, women follow the custom of their mothers for mikva (and candle lighting). So if your mom didn't dip, don't. And don't worry about it.

Correct. I remember seeing the line of women outside the Mattersdorfer Shul on Erev YK when we lived there. (I never went.)
