comment When the רא״ש refers to “הגאון”, who is he referring to?
Where is this רא״ש? Sometimes (usually actually) the רא״ש begins by quoting the Rif. If this quote of the גאון is in the quote of the Rif, it's probably from either the בה״ג or ר׳ האי.

comment Why is resurection of the dead a fundamental of faith according to the Rambam?
The Mishnah at the beginning of the last (or second to last, depending on your edition) says that one who does not believe in the ressurection has no part in the world to come. I don't know why the Mishnah says it, but it is certainly a principle. However, the Mishnah does not say that someone who doesn't believe in divine retribution has no part in the world to come. That is added in the Gemara.

The principle about the ressurection in not that "we must believe that god rewards and punishes in the form of ressurection". It is simply that we must believe that god will resurrect. However, there is ANOTHER principle, and that is the belief in Divine reward and punishment.

@Yishai, והיסוד האחד עשר שהוא יתעלה משלם גמול טוב למי שמקיים מצות התורה, ומעניש מי שעובר על אזהרותיה, ושגמולו הגדול הוא העולם הבא, ועונשו החמור הכרת.
