I don't speak Arabic, therefore if I'm making dua to Allah does it always have to be a surah from the Quran or can I make dua in English anytime too? For example: “O’ Allah please help me to do well on my test tomorrow”, or will I have to find a surah that is related to that?

And what about during sujood, can I make English dua during sujood or does it have to be a surah from the Quran?

If you want to pray (salat), you should speak in Arabic, because Allah wants muslims to pray like each other ( it's a kind of alliance). But if you want Allah to bless you( dua),he will help you, even if you do not ask him in Arabic. It can be in any language.
