comment Do the 「 なんやら」and 「なにやら」have the same meaning?
Part of my brain says that's a perfect sentence, but another part says that the use of 「なんやら」 in there looks strange. I would like to hear from other native speakers on this.

comment How to use both causative and て欲しい grammar at the same time?
To me, not really. I could only "guess" what you mean by that. When we use the phrase 「結婚させてほしい」 in Japanese, we are always referring to a third person, such as a parent, allowing or not allowing you to marry someone.

comment まだいたとはね meaning
By calling it "past tense", you are making the same mistake others have made. It is the modal た, not the past tense た.

comment The role of the particle に in ばかものに考えているに思えた。
「ばかものに考えているに思えた。」 makes no sense and it is difficult to discuss how a word is used in a sentence that makes no sense.

comment 動物を使った言い方 or 動物を使う言い方?
Why call it "past tense"? Just because you see a 「た」? If so, why do English-speakers say "I am married." using "ed" when clearly talking about the present?

comment What is the max number of kanji a jukugo can be made of?
The definition of 「熟語」 is pretty loose to begin with. How do we define it here? Words consisting of multiple smaller words? Words consisting of multiple kanji? Are we including proper nouns or not?

comment What's the difference among [停]{と}める、[止]{と}める、and [留]{と}める?
The question is clearly about transitive verbs, but only one of the nine example sentences above uses a transitive verb.
