The effect is immediate (either burning blood or burning the ally).
No, it can be played at other moments:

It is possible.

It is possible.

The problem with this line of thought is that combat defaults to close. So you are at close range when combat starts, during pre-range step even. (This is important in some outside the hourglass shenanigans)
Since blood to water doesn't specify the step its played at, I assume it can be played in prerange.

And so it has."

Not quite. You can't play cards that require a specific range to be played until you have moved after the "determine range" step.

The reason why you can play a Pulled Fangs if the opposing vampire goes to torpor is that you move to the end of round step when the opposing vampire goes to torpor which is after the determine range step, and default range is close range so you fulfill the Pulled Fangs condition.
