Marriage of Aisha and the Prophet?


1) I wanted to know if it is correct to understand the "consummation" of the marriage of Aisha and the Prophet only as a sexual act (sex)?
Or are there other options for understanding from the point of view of the Arabic language and Islamic scholars?

Could it be that consummation in their case was not a sexual act, but something else? Is there any evidence for this?
There was something on this topic here:


But maybe you will expand on this topic in more detail.

2) Is it true that Ibn Saad in Tabakat wrote that Aisha was 9 years old at the time of the engagement, and 12 years old at the time of consummation? Similar things are written about Ibn Hillikan.
