comment Are katakana names pronounced as they are written?
You should definitely pronounce them as they're written. There have been a number of times when I've pronounced things as they're pronounced in English, and my Japanese friends had no idea what I was saying. Then I said it as it's written in katakana, and they understood just fine.

comment Meaning of 「生きるにしても死ぬにしても」
Why does 人間なんて imply that the speaker looks down on humans? I assume it's the なんて part, but I thought that just meant "and the like" or "et cetera"?

comment I wish I hadn't gone there
If there's anything you shouldn't expect Google translate to be correct about, it's grammar. It always gives you the most literal translation possible.

comment Is there a difference between the particle お (o) and the particle を (wo)
Yes, を is pronounced the same as お when speaking. There is no particle お.

comment Can kanji compounds be formed arbitrarily?
I'm sure someone else can give a more detailed answer if the question re-opens, but the short answer to both parts of your question is no. In particular, there are several compounds that come to mind whose meaning actually changes quite dramatically when you switch the order of the kanji. For example: 日本 = Japan, 本日 = polite way to say "today"; 花火 = fireworks, 火花 = spark; 客観 = objectivity, 観客 = audience.

I've made grammar corrections to make the question more comprehensible. OP, if I've changed the intent of your question, please feel free to roll back my edits.

comment How to express “X sounds like Y”
「XXはYYのように聞こえる」と「XXはYYに聞こえる」は意味合いが違いますか?「XXはYYのように聞こえる」と「XXはYYみたいに聞こえる」は大体同じ意味合い‌​だと思っていますが。

comment Japanese Character-based Input (Cang Jie)
I don't think this is a question about learning resources, but I think it's more of a technology question than a language question.
