「通る」の連用形+「やんす」の命令形だと思います。 kotobank.jp/word/%E3%82%84%E3%82%93%E3%81%99-650011

comment What does the “だった” in “だったっけ” mean?
1限 and 1コマ are different. 1限 is the 1st period of the day, usually 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m.(depending on the uni, though). 1コマ is 1 period, quantity of periods.

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.

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".
