This book ("Jewish Life in the Time of the Talmud") may be of interest.

Also, was the reference to "Kesuboth" at the end of the question a typo?

comment What is a “migu”
I always read it as "מִגּוֹ." We also find many times something like "מִגּוֹ מַשְׁרִיתָא" in Targum Onkelos (e.g. Devarim 2:14), meaning "from within."

revised Asking a shaila where disclosure of classified information might be necessary
I think this was the intention of the author of this answer (if it wasn't, he should probably revert the edit)

comment What differentiates the Artscroll Talmud compared to other translations?
This is a critical review of the new English Steinsaltz edition. (Most Hebrew editions are mostly the same, as far as I've seen in my unscientific study.)

comment Why doesn't everyone say 'Al HaNisim for both days of Purim?
@DoubleAA The Mishnah Brurah records a dispute whether to say Al HaNisim on Shushan Purim outside of a walled city. I can't find it right now, but I remember that it was in the laws of Purim rather than those of Chanukah.

Saying Al HaNisim is also a dispute in the Mishnah Brurah (I don't have time to find it now, but it's in the laws of Purim).

comment What does the Megillah mean when it says Mordechai was “dover shalom” to all his seed?
Rashi says the entire nation's seed (i.e. it means "all its seed," referring to the לעמו previously mentioned). Most translations to English say his own seed.
