Breeding usually happens with change in weather conditions. Usually change from summer to winter or in climates that are always hot(tropical) it is induced by the change from wet to dry.
If you have a frog that is native to the USA, then I would recommend you give it some warm weeks or months and then some cooler weeks or months. If you have a frog that is from say Costa Rica, then I recommend you give it some dry weeks or months and then some wet weeks or months.

This I cannot answer exactly. If it were me, I would keep varying levels of water. Try to keep as much variety as possible.

Why do you want to breed these? You can't sell them (unless for bait), or release them back into the wild. I'm not even sure they're legal to collect at this point; I haven't read enough into Minnesota's wildlife laws. (Turns out for a couple of months, legal to collect) They're definitely not legal to sell without permits however, and should not be released back into the wild either.

Some regulations for you.

After a bit more digging, here are some more applicable wildlife laws: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=97C.601

Just some thoughts.

I would look into getting the permits first and make sure everything is legally above board to sell native wild frogs before you even start trying to breed them. You may have trouble legally selling them across state borders, for instance.

Just doing a little reading, a single female can lay between 500 and 1250 eggs per year.

That's a lot of Exo-terras...

It is generally not legal to sell native frogs. You absolutely cannot send them across state lines. Read up on the Lacey Act.
