comment Lego on Shabbos
I've asked my Rav, he lives in Bnei-Brak and his name is Refael Antin (there is no chance you can know him). Source to the opposite opinion: שמירת שבת כהלכתה פרק ט"ז , הלכה י"ח He says that it is allowed to plays blocks that are easily removed, but it they are not easily removed it is forbidden, and in any case He says in halakha aleph that all toys are allowed just for children and not for adults. But there is a slight discussion in heara נ"ג, so the conclusion is a bit dimmed.

comment The male name Yona
Maybe you can call Yona to both male and female bird and Noah just "occasionally" took a female bird. However the male version was caught more because of Yona Hanavi.

comment sameach vs. samach
those are two different words: שַׂמַּח is past tense and שַׂמֵּחַ is present tense so the translation is differs. However I don't know the reason for that.
