comment What is the reason for שנים מקרא ואחד תרגום?
Thank you for providing these sources. Did you come across anyone that explains what the perfection is in this Mitzvah that merits the long life? Why more so than any learning Torah? Why this formula of twice mikreh and then once Tirgum?

How about אינו יהודי? or Aeino Yehudi? or perhaps a Bnei Noach, if appropriate?

The Ralbag holds all the mitzvot can be derived from the Dibrot.

comment Is it Gezel Sheinah for a teacher to wake up a student in class?
hmmm..could be. Thanks I will take a look at that. That Mishnah would seem to prove the point as well. If you could burn their clothes, I would assume you can wake up a student.

comment Is being vegan “kosher”?
Bishul Akum is a problem when the food is Oleh Al Shulchan Malachim, suitable for a king's table (Avoda Zara 38a) I often wondered if the food served at Vegan restaurant would meet this criteria.

comment Existence of Heaven and Hell
Third, even if you are correct that it is only dealing with a person that did a violation earning Karet, the point still stands. The point is that for the wicked there is no idea of Hell. There is no idea of burning in some painful situation for all eternity. This is the idea of hell I am suggesting the Rambam does not have. I thank you for your comments and I have edited the answer to reflect your comment and added a reference to Chapter 9. That Halacha does contribute to the point as well.

comment Existence of Heaven and Hell
Thank you Jake for your comments. First point is that I am not certain the Rambam has no concept of Gehenem, it would seem so from his ommisions and comments. Second, in Chapter 8, Law 1 the Rambam states that "the concquence for the wicked is that they do not merit this existance (Olam Habah), but are cut off and cease to exist". He does not state this is only speaking of a Rasha that did a violation meritting Kares. He seems to be suggesting that Kares(cessation) of the soul is a natural result of those that do not merit Olam Habah. I will continue in next comment...
