Wa Alaikum Assalam
Wikipedia has some good explanation here and here.
Please note that there is a Hadith that requires you to return Salam same or better. That means if someone said:

- Wa Alaikum Assalam Wa Rahmat-ul-Allah
- Wa Alaikum Assalam Wa Rahmat-ul-Allah Wa Barakatuhu
There's no age difference recommended in the shariah. Only thing that's obligated is that the marriage must be done properly with the consent of the two individuals.
The issue of age old and young is a cultural matter and not religious.
No, it isn't Sunnah
Shaking hands is something that is encouraged in sharia, and it is a cause of sins being forgiven.
It was narrated that al-Bara’ ibn ‘Aazib (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“There are no two Muslims who meet and shake hands, but they will be forgiven before ...
This has many views, but apparently the strongest view is this:
the majority of the scholars (jumhur) are of the opinion that Walima is a meal that is prepared after the marriage has been consummated. This was the practice of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace), as explicitly mentioned in one narration.

Some scholars say that *Wearing any ring is not Sunnah since the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) used to wear a ring for signing letters sent to other kings. Because they told him that kings would not accept any letter that has not been signed. Hence, Scholars say it is Sunnah for those who use it to sign papers and documents. And some say it is Sunnah even ...

ordering that wood be gathered, then I would ...

To cut, trim, shave the beard in any way for whatever reason is haram and clear disobedience of the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him). As was pointed out, to have the beard grow, and to trim the mustache short is of human nature, Source. So to do something against that nature because some disbelievers are on that nature, is absurd. The point is, ...
Note: This is a controversial topic.
When Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said his companions to do something, by that he meant it. Which means there is no other go for the followers. And that is Fard. But, Sunnah is either what deduced from the behaviour of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or if he has explicitly said that it is 'voluntary upon one if he performs so and so ...
According to the Maliki school:
only one salam (Tasleemah تسليمة) is wajib (obligatory - required). And they rely on this Hadith as a proof that only one single tasleemah is required:
"Allah's Messenger would say one Taslim for the Salat while facing forward and turning to his right side a little."

What you've been reciting after Durood-E-Ibrahim is called "Dua-E-Koonoot" (Allahumma inna nastainuka, wanastagfirukka....). We recite that in "Salaat ul Beet'ir" on third rak'at after an extra takbir.

Who are the members of the Ahlul-Bayt?
Initially it ought to be clear that the term ‘’Ahlul-Bayt’’ is a Qur'anic, Hadith (tradition), and theological expression meaning the family of the Islam Prophet(s). Of course The term "Ahl" lexically means closeness and love, and the meaning of "Bayt" is place for living.
The names of Ahlul-Bayt members?
I don't know from where people get that it is prohibited,as this has no backup unless in the local customs!
Here is a reference to the Fatwa @Abdel Rahman Shamel mentioned.

of 'A'isha went to her and he asked about the bath of the Naby

Manaf was a pre-Islamic idol which the Arabs believed was God and touched it for blessings. There's no actual meaning of the name.
I think it's not a good idea to name oneself after false deities.

Assalamu alaikum, so as you know Fridays are special days in Islam. If
you want to worship in the best ways you must look at to messenger of
Allah and the prophet Rasulallah (Pbuh). How is he doing, we should do
likewise. Our worship is precious as similar to his worship. If we
look at prayer with only this approach, we can be a best Muslim.
Ahadith on the recommendation to fast 6 days of shawwal
Generally we are recommended to fast outside of Ramadan. The only days we are not allowed to fast are: the two Eids and the three days of tashreeq (after Eid al-Adha) and we are also not allowed to fast on Friday (if we don't fast a day before or after it too) and all the year or life time.

The hadith is in Sahih Muslim:
Once the Prophet, while passing through one of the graveyards of
Medina or Mecca heard the voices of two persons who were being
tortured in their graves. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "These two persons are

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
Voluntary prayers done in congregation are of two types, one of which
it is Sunnah to do in congregation, such as the eclipse prayer,
prayers for rain, and qiyaam during Ramadaan (Taraweeh). These are
always done in congregation as is the Sunnah. The second type are not
done in ...
"Obedience is only in righteousness (الطاعة بالمعروف)" means you do not obey anyone who commands to commit misdeeds or to abstain from obligatory duties. However in affairs in which you have choice you can obey parents even if they stop you from a good thing.

him and grant him peace, ...

The phrase بسم الله وعلى بركة الله (Bismillahi wa'alaa barakatillah) is not found in any books of hadeeth as far as I know.
