I wanted to confirm my understanding: is sanity a package structure built with a specific code and can be hosted anywhere to provide an API consumable by any client?

Sanity is a platform made up of two parts: the Content Lake and the Studio. The Content Lake is a hosted schemaless backend that can be access by APIs to supply your content to whichever type of presentation method you prefer. The Studio is a React-based, highly customizable application that provides you with a human-friendly way of authoring that content.
The Studio can be hosted where ever you like (including with Sanity).

Good, Other than the time and resources required, how do we compare the benefits of Sanity with building our own headless application from scratch, let's say: Django backend with reactJS?

Flexibility & scalability wise

As you said, time and resources are a huge aspect of it, as well as maintenance. Beyond that, since Sanity is un-opinionated about how you use your content, it's highly flexible. I highly recommend checking out the Platform section of our site to check out all of the features.

Sure I will, just a couple of questions please:
Assuming I have a mobile app with is built already with a badly structured backend, can Sanity be a good alternative to provide a replacment webservices, Admin and Web interface for it?

Definitely, but I would suggest you don't just directly import your content without cleaning up the structure if that's the issue. Migrating content to Sanity is very straightforward, but if you have a bad content model it's best to reshape it before doing so.
