comment From whence are the laws of Sukkot derived?
If "the laws of arba'at haminim are considered Halakhah Le'Moshe Mi'Sinai", does that mean all of their peratim (details) are also Halakhah Le'Moshe Mi'Sinai (e.g. that the Hadas' leaves should not be larger than one's thumbnail)? If so, and if @Menachem or someone else can find the RaMBa"M source in the above comment, that sounds like an answer to me.

comment Why must a sukkah have three walls?
Thank you for the Gemara citation! In truth, I'm looking for the latter (the ta'am) although I assumed that the former would lead to the latter.

comment From whence are the laws of Sukkot derived?
I'm not certain if the laws of Sukkot were derived, bestowed orally or arrived at otherwise. I attempted to leave the question open-ended and think its wording suffices for now.

comment From whence are the laws of Sukkot derived?
Thanks for the reference, @DoubleAA. Similar to the laws of Shehhitah, which RaSh"I states can be used as proof for an Oral Tradition, I'm wondering if the same can be said of the laws of Sukkot. WaYiqra 23 only discusses sitting in "sukkot", but does not discuss what sukkot are.

Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh, Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 614:1,7) discusses the permissibility of rubber shoes (e.g. Crocs).

comment Arba'a Ve'esrim Ushlosh Meyot - mi yodeya?
-1 on your -1, because RaSh"I comments on the Helbenah, not to imply H"W that only the Helbenah was brought as Qetoret offering, but to interpret the inclusion of the Helbenah itself. Similarly, different combinations may have different meanings (although, again, I don't have a source for such a proposition). For example, perhaps knowing that Mor, Qetzi'ah and Qoshet (along with the four 70 maneh samanim) make up 324 maneh tells us what those Jews' missions are together/separately within Kelal Yisra'el.
