comment How precisely oriented towards Jerusalem should we face for praying?
It seems pretty universal that this question only applies outside of a בית כנסת and that inside one the rule is to face the front/ארון קודש. I once asked a local פוסק about which way to face in a V-shaped shul and he instructed me to be perpendicular to my row of seats.

comment How precisely oriented towards Jerusalem should we face for praying?
I heard from a former resident of South Africa recently that where he davened they basically faced north but called it "מזרח".

comment Is there tashlumin for n'ila?
Also, is his logic there extensible to the n'ila that used to be said at the conclusion of other fast days? (See Ta'anis 27ish.)

comment Is there tashlumin for n'ila?
"Ne'ila is different enough from other prayers that indeed, it can't make up for them or be made up for." But we can make up for mincha of shabas on motza'ei shabas.

comment Can anyone help decipher the bottom two lines of this inscription?
I agree in principle with your point and the appearance of those last few ר and דs. Just adding a possible allusion to the pot.

comment Riddle: In parshas Toldos, where are a second set of twins mentioned?
This is by no means a primary source, but אגרות משה אבן העזר חלק ד סימן ט ענף א mentions in passing the possibility of different mothers. Link: hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=921&st=&pgnum=16
