comment Why don't we all do Kemach Yashan?
We do not translate the Torah without the commentaries. Kedushin 36, 37 discusses whether Chodosh applies outside of Eretz Yisrael, grain of a non Jew, etc. As you can see from judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/6644/… there is disagreement how and when this applies and many major Halachic arbitrators hold it is not required in certain instances, thus many do not keep Chodosh.

@DoubleAA: Is it truly a case of need if one knows in advance that they have to rely on such a leniency?

comment Can the daughter of two people who could not marry a Cohen marry a cohen?
ענין זה כבר עלה על שלחן מלכים וראש המדברים בענין הוא כמו"ר הגר"ש משאש זצ"ל שהתיר לכהן לשאת בת ישראלית מגוי כאשר נתקשרו בעבותות אהבה כמו שכתב בשו"ת שמ"ש ומגן ח"ג אה"ע סימן נ"ח, וסימן ע"ג וח"ד סימן נ"ט, סימן ס', סימן ס"א, סימן ס"ח, סימן ע', סימן ע"ג, סימן ע"ד ועוד. והסכימו איתו גדולי הדור הלא הם הראשון לציון הגר"ע יוסף שליט"א הובאו דבריו בשו"ת שמ"ש ומגן ח"ג אה"ע סימן ע"ג ובשו"ת יביע אומר ח"ט אה"ע סימן ה', ח"ז אה"ע סי' ט, ח"י אה"ע סי' י"ד וכן פסק הראשון לציון הגרש"מ עמאר שליט"א בספרו שמע שלמה ח"ה אה"ע סי' ח'

comment What is the rationale to continue saying Yekum Purkan in its present state
Great question, especially as I found the following from the Aderes. האדר"ת זצ"ל תיקן שבמקום "לְמָרָנָן וְרַבָּנָן חֲבוּרָתָא קַדִּישָׁתָא דִּי בְּאַרְעָא דְיִשְׂרָאֵל וְדִּי בְּבָבֶל" יאמרו "לְמָרָנָן וְרַבָּנָן חֲבוּרָתָא קַדִּישָׁתָא דִּי בְּאַרְעָא דְיִשְׂרָאֵל וְדִּי בכל אתר ואתר"

I can think of differences between a long deep freeze and a short walk to Shul.

comment Shisha Ve'esrim Ushlosh Meyot - mi yodeya?
It sounds to me of the previous temple. מבואר שהיה שכ"ו" אמה". Shehaya means it was. If it is talking about the future temple it would say Sheyiye.

comment Can a Shul collect payment from one who does not follow specific rules?
@user6591: 1 - The Seforim were donated to be used, not to be returned to their location. 2 - The Shul is not the owner, it is owned by the community.

I think it would depend on what the Rabbi who is giving the Shiur wants.
