Which effects dipole more radius size or ionization ? Or do these factors not effect dipole ? Only electronegativity effects dipole ?

I don't believe atomic radius affects dipole moments ( or we haven't talked about it). To my understanding it affects polarization more so. Ionization energy is a contributing factor in calculating an element's electronegativity and electronegativity affects what molecules can create dipole bonds/moments. For instance a chlorine atom ( highly electronegative) would pull on the the electrons of a sodium atom ( less electronegative).

Yes I agree electronegativity is what affects dipole moments more

When we draw the arrow, does the arrow point towards the atom that is more electronegative? for instance does the arrow point towards the partially negative atom?

Yes, the arrow would go towards the more EN atom.
an example would be H2O, since O is more EN than H the arrow will point towards O
