comment もらっちゃっていい? what is the meaning of this expression?
Imagine a conversation between two girls. They talk about their boyfriends, and a girl says "The guy over there is my boyfriend", then another girl says jokingly "Wow! He (That) is exactly my ideal type. I almost (and unmaliciously) take him away from you. Is it ok?"

comment Haphazard usage of katakana and hiragana for particles and okurigana
Technically, that is not katakana ハ, but alternative character for hiragana は. See F588 in this page: www10.plala.or.jp/koin/koinhentaigana.html They also wrote に as F541 in 1st line, は as F581 in 2nd line.

@user54609 According to this dictionary, Chinese also used 泰平 in the past. images.gg-art.com/dictionary ② 安定平和 [peaceful] 泰,安也。——《字汇》 宇泰定者,发乎天光。——《庄子·庚桑楚》 泰而不骄,威而不猛。——《论语·尧曰》 以祈国泰民安。——吴自牧《梦梁录》 家贫躬耕,粟熟则食粟,…处之泰然也。——《元史·许衡传》 否泰如天地。——《玉台新咏·古诗为焦仲卿妻作》 如:泰日(天下太平的时代) 泰治(太平安定) 泰定(安定) 泰和(太平) 泰平(政教清平,国泰民安。即太平) 泰通(国泰政通)

comment What to call the characters-based decoration found in many announce emails
If these are signatures (decorated or not), we just call them as "署名". It these are in bodies, these are probably called "飾り罫", I think.

According to the context you provided, I think "既に終わらせているのだろうか" is "(犯人は)既に(仕事を)終わらせているのだろうか".

comment (sentence) Usage of 圏外
Ash's translation is correct. The name "Takuya" was inside the top 10 baby names last year, but is outside the top 10 now. Many parents name their son after Takuya Kimura, who is a popular idol.

comment What is the meaning of 「ほおかむり」?
The teacher wanted to teach the difference between お and う. Many young kids often confuse them, such as "とおり(通り) vs とうり(党利)", "とお(十) vs とう(等)", "ほお(頬) vs ほう(方)", "こおり(氷) vs こうり(小売り)".
