comment Where is the source not to walk over someone because it stops him growing?
@DoubleAA It's quoted here, though the Shu"t Rasha on HebrewBooks.org speaks about saying Kriyas Shema before Tzeis so I am not sure if that is a mistake or a different version.

The way I heard the story was similar to how it is at the end of this page except that it was his prospective shver testing him.

comment How old was Eisav when he fell into bad ways?
@DoubleAA While Esav might have had bechira whether he would sin or not, it is up to Hashem whether Abraham would hear about it.

comment Is it necessary to wear kippa to bed or when not moving?
@SethJ I am not sure what you mean. SA says one may not walk four amos with uncovered hair and MB adds from Shaloh that even sleeping with a head covering is Midas Chassidus.

comment Explanation of Avos 2:6?
@vram Everything came from the linked book Vedibarta Bam besides for the source of the Arizal. (I believe that this idea also comes from the Rambam's son but I would have to find the source for that.)

comment The “Miracle” of Hagar's giving birth
@CharlesKoppelman The Ramban says "כל ימי היות בהם הליחה" which I am translating loosely as remaining fertile. The point being that their fertility could naturally continue past age one hundred which is certainly not the case nowadays.

comment Who was R' Avin Nagara
I could not find anything else about him (besides for the Seder Hadoros that @ba linked to), but some seforim include him among Amoraim who had professions so I guess they understand he was also a Rabbi.
