comment What were Alter Halpern's main issues with Marcus Jastrow's Dictionary?
"There was an anti-Jastrow article by R. Salomon Alter Halpern in the April 1970 Jewish Observer; R. Ya’akov Kamenetsky is quoted in Emes Le-Ya’akov on Shulhan Arukh (Yoreh De’ah 246 n. 121) as permitting the use of the Jastrow dictionary." torahmusings.com/2006/01/saul-lieberman-and-orthodox

comment Who wrote the Toldos Aharon on Chumash?
It is probably written in Hebrew in the Chumash. Can you add the hebrew spelling to your answer? It may aid in searching.

comment Who wrote the Toldos Aharon on Chumash?
Why do you say he lived in Nikalaro, and not Pesaro? Also, I couldn't find a place called Nikalaro, is there a different spelling?

Here someone reprinted just the chiddushim from the Sefer Beit Aharon. It might have some biographical information - otzar.org/wotzar/book.aspx?170550&;

@Yishai: It was published in 1937-38, so if you can find an earlier Chumash with the Toldot Aharon it will disprove that theory: he.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

The chapters in the tractates are generally known by their first word, which may strengthen your question.
