comment Why pray for Y'hoshua and not Kalev?
The Kli Yakar writes the first half of this (that Yehoshua needed special prayers as he descended from Yosef).

comment Why do we say hamotzi lechem min haaretz instead of min haadama?
I know this is similar to Shalom's second point, but I still feel it warrants it's own answer as it is sourced, and contrasts the two blessings.

comment When and how did haman amass so much wealth?
Isn't that the Gemora quoted in the question? Can you clarify what you are trying to add?

comment What was the underlying problem behind Hashem’s decision to lead the Children of Israel to Eretz Yisrael by a circuitous route?
Isn't it a kal vechomer - if even when they were far away they considered returning to Egypt, how much more reason for concern that they would be tempted to do so when they were nearby and going back was much easier?

comment Why does the Megillah tell us Mordechai was a Jew?
@DoubleAA The Gemora seems to understand both descriptions as applying to Mordechai - קרי ליה יהודי אלמא מיהודה קאתי וקרי ליה ימיני אלמא מבנימין קאתי.

comment Is it right to point out that the Chazzan omitted a brocho in his repetition of the amida?
Note that When Shulchan Aruch stated "mazkirim osi" it was referring to mid-repetition, whereas this question is about if the mistake was noticed after the repetition had already been completed.. (I am not disagreeing with the conclusion; just pointing out that it's not the exact case).

comment Shaliach Tzibbur missed out one or more blessings in the repetition of the amidah. What to do later?
@DoubleAA Right, Shulchan Aruch there does point out some exceptions due to Tirchah Detzibura, but I didn't mention this in my answer as skipping one of the brochos is not one of them.

comment What was the name of Tzipora's mother?
This is a really hard Midrash to understand, as this sefer asks: 1) If so, she would have been three months old when she saved Moshe, and she was already talking by then! 2) Why does the Midrash say he didn't want to marry both of them because he didn't want to marry two sisters; just marrying Tziporah was a problem of marrying his sister.
