comment What does a Sephardic library consist of?
@Re'eh Are you interested in Halakhah LeMa'aseh (e.g. "What does Rav X say in case Y?") or in digging deep into the works of Sepharadi poseqim for Limmud Be'Iyun? There are two predominant shittot in the Sepharadi world today: Hakham 'Ovadiah A"H and Hakham Mordekha'i Eliyahu A"H. That's why I ask.

Can you help us understand for what purpose you want to build a library? Is it for parashah study, looking up Halakhah LeMa'aseh, Mussar study...?

comment Is the Talmud 100% Oral Torah?
A source indicating that Kaddish, Chanukka and Purim were instated by the Rabbis would improve this answer.

Having gone through a similar journey, I too would highly recommend these fundamental books if not in the same exact order.

comment Where is Shabbos called “the most precious of days”?
@jim It's not a "problem". But, if we're looking for an/the original source on the matter, I figured going further back in time would help.

comment חַשְׁמוֹנָאִי or חַשְׁמוֹנַאי which is correct?
This is also brought down here (~2:30) by Hakham 'Ovadiah. He states that the correct pronunciation, according to the vast majority of references to the word in the Yerushalmi, is without an aleph. Nevertheless, he states that one who pronounces it with an aleph certainly has what to rely upon.

comment Where is Shabbos called “the most precious of days”?
FYI - The Shabbat piyut/zemirah cited in the question predates Ba'al HaTurim by at least 50 years.
