comment How to understand this phrase?
I think it's 'the history of games'; but you couldn't tell easily without context. (I think I've read the manga this is from.)

comment conjugation: やあります vs やります
I think you may have made a fundamental misunderstanding here. Can you explain your understanding of the difference between ある and あります?

comment なっ at the start of a sentence
Yeah, if that's なが, that's just straight-up hesitation/stuttering.

comment Is 動詞修飾副詞 a grammatical term?
Just looking at it suggests it means adverbs that modify verbs specifically rather than adverbs in general (since 'adverb' is often used as kind of a junk bin category); but I'm going on nothing other than the fact that that's what I would assume a word made of those parts means.

comment When is “私じゃ” used?
I don't think it's a duplicate; this is about topic marking with じゃ/では.

comment Does remembering meanings in two languages help
Hello, and welcome to Stack Exchange! Technically, this question is off-topic, since we're more about how Japanese works than how to learn it. Still, as advice, you might actually be better off trying to remember meanings in -neither- language, and instead connecting the Japanese word directly with whatever it refers to.

comment ない vs 無い: Negative ある vs adjective?
It is both of those things. It was once just an adjective; it has now replaced the historical negative form of ある (あらず).

comment Is this actually ごぬんくださーい, and does it mean “Excuse us!”?
You seem to have misread め as ぬ.

comment When to use Dono or Nan?
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft X号車 is a counter. The explanation is under B up there. (Specifically in this case, he's asking 'which number train car is it' and expecting a response like 3号車 or something)

comment How do you call someone “Tryhard”?
The idea seems distinctly American to me (Americans seem to have a thing against people taking things seriously); I wonder if Japanese even -can- succinctly express this.

comment Is it common for non-European words to share similar pronunciations between Japanese and other languages in East Asia?
Languages that have borrowed words from Chinese have borrowed words from Chinese, and thus those words will sound fairly similar (due to having been the same word at one point) modulo adaptations to the target language and subsequent changes.
