There are a few possible answers and facts here that build on each other: 1) A previous comment of Rashi just before on 75a, already spelled out the case by saying we do not learn out "from the red dyed skins of rams"..etc. because they did not need to be specifically killed by "shechitah". (Apparently they were not needed to be eaten or offered, but merely ...

No. Rashi was a tremendously great scholar and recipient of oral traditions from the schools of Germany, but he did not receive supernatural ruach hakodesh. The Ohr Hachaim (who lived a few centuries after Rashi) writes in his commentary to Genesis (6: 3) that after the destruction of the Temple prohecy ceased but Ruach Hakodesh continued.

Unfortunately, indeed we do not have prophets today, and Chazal say that the last prophets were Hagai, Zecharia and Malachi. Rashi's momentous perush on most of the Bible and most of the gemara speak for themselves, however here are a few quotes (loose translations by me, except for the last Rashi) about his special work (this list can go on forever): The ...

This is the traditional teaching from the time of the Rishonim of how the final redemption will unfold. It appears in many different places such as Midrash Talpiot starting at the 7th sign of the redemption. http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=20804&st=&pgnum=57 Machzor Vitry which was by the grandson of Rashi. ...

If I'm reading the text correctly, Del Mediggo is referring to the idea that the Ra'avad is giving in his explanation of the phrases, 'HaMelech HaKadosh' and 'Al tashiveinu', that they are referring to the Holy name of 72 triplets (216 letters). This name relates to converting 'Gevurot' to 'Chassadim' which is why this would be related to the 10 days of ...
