Time necessary for making a connection flying Easyjet from Bristol, UK to Amsterdam and connecting on Delta Airlines to Detroit, MI, US

This is a bad plan. EasyJet and Delta do not interline, so you'd be purchasing two separate tickets. When you do this, you are responsible for arranging your own connection, not the airlines. If you ...

Time necessary for making a connection flying Easyjet from Bristol, UK to Amsterdam and connecting on Delta Airlines to Detroit, MI, US

What is the earliest point a passenger arriving from outside of the EU and from the UK can meet up at Schiphol (Amsterdam) airport?
