comment Onigiri and nigiri
結び comes from 結ぶ which means to "bind/wrap/tie up". In one sense, it can mean "ending" as mentioned (where it all gets "tied-up"), but it's also a synonym for お握り, probably because they're often wrapped with seaweed.

comment How to say “also” or “too”
Yes, you can make a "tari" form of an i-adjective, but the only time I've really seen them used is in "opposites" or contrast, to say like "some things are X, some are Y". この部屋は暑かったり、寒かったりします。 ("This room is either hot or cold.")

comment Kanji for native Japanese concepts: Kun'yomi spanning multiple morphemes
I voted to close because this seems so broad that I doubt an exhaustive list could reasonably be constructed. I touched on a few examples here. Maybe you should narrow down the scope of your questions to something more concrete.
