Its not an actual visa but a transit without a visa. You can stay up to 6 days (~144 hours)
That routing is acceptable, china is only interested in the Hong Kong > Beijing > Japan portion. Just look for the signs mentioning the 144 hour, fill out the blue form and they should give you the temporary entry permit to leave the airport. As long as you don't have Turkish stamp in passport you should have no problem

You definitely qualify for 144 hours visa free travel. It really doesn't matter whether you are flying on through or separate tickets, so you are just fine. Just keep in mind to have all the necessary documentation in printed form, i.e. plane tickets and accommodation booking.

No, you don't need to pick up the luggage and check in again at PEK. If you purchase the interline tickets, you will catch the flight. If not, I am afraid that the time is not enough. You should prepare at least 2.5 to 3 hours to finish this transfer.

If your next flight is still in T3, then the time is enough. If not, you’d better change your ticket. Since you have a connect ticket, you don’t have to collect your luggage, and then follow the steps below:
STEP1: Flight Arrival
STEP2: Transfer Procedures
STEP3: Border Inspection
STEP4: Security Check
STEP5: Custom Inspection
STEP6: Waiting & Boarding
