comment The word 'Halakhah'
In fact, they are not part of the basis nor motivation for my question. I simply realized today that we use the word "halakhah" (הלכה) so freely and that I have no idea how that word came to mean "Jewish law".

comment If someone eats in the succah anyways while it's raining, do they need to stay in the kosher part?
Humbly, I would alter your final comment to read that "he must sit in the least uncomfortable spot". Since we are no longer concerned about his obligation of sitting in the sukkah (since he is exempt from this obligation due to rainfall), one could argue that we are now dealing with "Wenishmartem me'od lenafshotekhem".

Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh, Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 635:4) states (based on Hazon 'Ovadiah) that there is no Biblical prohibition in staying in the sukkah during rainfall; but, the person is still deemed lay as you cited.

comment Koishele on Lulav
Sefaradim do not use it. Yalqut Yosef writes that, because there are poseqim who hold that even holding the minim in a keli is enough to fulfill one's obligation, one using a koishele must be careful to have in mind not to fulfill his obligation in such a case.

comment Why is the wording of the beracha upon shaking the arba minim only on lulav?
See Hayim Vital's Peri Etz Hayim, Sha'ar HaLulav, Pereq Gimel. I'm not going to pretend to understand it, but I found it by doing a basic search.

If you like, maybe you can edit into the question why the Gemara is concerned about the height of the species.
