Unless you want your name printed on the ballot, you do not need any signatures. Write-in votes are allowed in most , if not all states. If you want to be on the ballot,the number of signatures required varies from state to state from 5000 to something like 45,000. You have to file a separate petition in each state, and of course all signatures must be valid and verifiable. You usually would need to have at least 20% more than the required minimum. You also have to pay a fee in most states. The wikipedia link gives more details.

Senators are elected by direct popular vote. In order to win, you need one more vote than any of your opponents. That number varies depending on the number of voters in the state.
