comment What is 〜からです and when is it used? How does it differ from 〜ですから and 〜んです?
Removing the incorrect translation, as I think it might be a bit distracting.

Why doesn't 和製英語 also drive you nuts?

comment Why are the katakana important to learn?
+1, especially for "you're going to regularly find yourself effectively illiterate."

comment Why did the translator use ゴナラ here?
True. I guess this is just one long way of me say, "I don't get it!"

comment Why did the translator use ゴナラ here?
@user1205935 maybe...but the お isn't the polite 御 but the entire reading of the kanji 屁 (indicated by both jisho and tangorin).

comment Why are the katakana important to learn?
I'm guessing the thumbs down is because this is a really specific example of something that happened to you because of it. This sounds like an anecdotal way of saying: you often need to know katakana to read names.

Where does the ゴ come from?

What does を mean when it isn't a direct object?

comment How do we roll a ball along a street from A to B?
I know 転がる is an intransitive verb. Doesn't を indicate a direct object?

revised How do we roll a ball along a street from A to B?
Altered a sentence. "'rolling along the street' rather means 「道に沿って転がる」 than 「道を転がる」." takes a Japanese to English perspective.

comment How do we roll a ball along a street from A to B?
"ボールが道の上を転がる" How is this a correct sentence? Since "上を" is a direct object, how can it be used with "転がる", an intransitive verb?

comment Are the 4-byte UTF-8 Kanji rare enough that I can ignore them?
If you read the question carefully, this question is definitely not off topic. It's a question on how often the rarer kanji are used (i.e. just how "rare" are they). Just because it pertains to programming doesn't mean it doesn't pertain to Japanese.
