comment If one keeps the deoraita nidah(7days) but not the additional 4-5 days, is there a punishment?
I have this feeling that you're not going to be convinced by answers that you read online. I think you should talk to a rav face to face.

comment SE Challenge: Halachot in which rulings range from permissible to Torah violation?
It's probably rabbinic at best (akin to why kidushei biah is no longer performed.)

@MonicaCellio. He considers that it should, because his point of departure is Chanukiah and Megillah.

comment Could having to add the extra 4-5 days to change the status of nidah to zaav and not allowing the original 7 day nida be like adding to a mitzva?
The two chumrot that the Rema holds that make the halacha be 5 days from when the woman's period starts are a chumrot that are addressed by the other question. The best advice I can give you is to find a rav who knows this subject well, who can explain the sources of the various halachot involved. I don't really know the details well enough to explain them myself, and there are few English books that explain in enough detail to correct all of the misconceptions packed into this question.

I don't think the linked question adequately addresses the question, which is about the 72 hours from the last relations that have to elapse before you can start counting the 7 clean days. That is a biblical law, derived by drasha from a paseuk, and applies biblically to niddah as well as zavah.

comment What does “חפש כל חדרי בטן” mean?
I've removed the parenthetical about Ashkenazim, since Sephardim say a paragraph containing that phrase too. (In fact, Sephardim say that paragraph during Tachanun every Monday and Thursday.)
