The Ramban to Bamidbar 33:1 quotes the Rambam in Moreh Nevuchim to answer your question. In a sentence, all of the locations are recorded so that the future generations know that our existence in the desert was maintained miraculously.
The first place is when they come to Moshe with the original request. At that time, Moshe asks Hashem whether they are right, and Hashem tells him that yes, they are. However, at this point, it is still completely theoretical. Later on, the Torah actually starts talking about dividing the land, more-specifically, the land on the East Bank, part of which ...
The question in 36:1-4 was not brought by the Bnos Tzelaphchad but by the leaders of the tribe of Menasheh. The daughters of Tzelaphchad had been told that they could marry whomever they wanted. The tribals leaders realized that if they married outside the tribe, then the land that the women inhertited would become part of their husbands' tribes (when their ...
I heard an answer in the name of the Divrei Shaul by Rabbi Yosef Shaul Halevi Nathansohn that the reason is because the איסור to return to מצרים is specifically to go backwards through the travels of בנ''י in the מידבר, thereby undoing יציאת מצרים.
Here is a link to a Drasha from Rabbi Moshe Wolfson Shlita on this topic.
I would suggest a different understanding of the word 'partnership'. The Chochmas Shlomo writes in his gloss on Shulchan Aruch Choshen Mishpat siman 369 "a king who rules the entire world is not applicable the laws of dinei dimalchusa, for how can he say that he doesn't want to live in his land, all the lands are his! Should he fly in the air?" We find that ...

Their Masei recording includes both features you're looking for. I only listened to 33:10 and 11, but it seems to use the special trop. 35:5, including the yerach ben yomo and ...

My answer is based on my own analysis of the context of the verses you are mentioning. Usually, a parsha "break" is used to separate ideas or stories. Keep in mind, that for the most part, the verses you are mentioning list names of places. However, as verse 2 of the same chapter implies, these travels were also indicated because special events happened, ...
The Imrei Emes explained that we see that the daughters of Zlophchad cherished the land of Israel from when they made their request. Zlophchad died as either the wood-chopper of Bamidbar 15:32 or as one of those who attempted to go into Eretz Yisroel after the sin of the spies in Bamidbar 14:40. So Zlophchad died before the decree of the 40 years. And yet ...
The Leviim are just as much owners of the land as any other tribe. The cities of the Leviim were apportioned to them by lottery in the same way as the rest of the land (see Malbim Yehoshua 21:2) and they were complete owners. However, you may be right in thinking that their ownership might be different in this regard. The Gemara tells us that ארץ ישראל ...
I sifted through a number of sites, and all, seem to give a "D'var Torah", so there doesn't appear to be anything "authritative". However, this article seems to give the most "direct" answer, I think: As to the future – that can found in just one word. The word is ‘ba’ama’ and occurs several times in chapter 35 verse 5.

See Targum Yonasan (Devarim 6:10) who says that after Aharon died Amalek attacked. Some Jews ran back towards Mitzrayim by six journeys. The b'nei Levi chased them and fought with them. There were casualties on both sides and although the survivors returned, the b'nei Levi concluded that their losses were as a result of not mourning for Aharon properly. Here ...
