Answers

General Information
1a) http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=937269&topic=41622861
1b) It's a direct sequel to the Journey, where you play as Aigis.. Be warned, though: It has MASSIVE spoilers in the first five minutes, so DO NOT PLAY IT FIRST.
1c) Things that DO carry: Compendium, MC level, money, Max S.Link ITEMS (NOT rank), equipment in inventory, equipment on MC.
Things that do NOT carry: Personae in roster, party members' levels, consumables, equipment on party members, Colorless Mask (or whatever it's called), Elizabeth's requests, fusion items that are NOT earned via S.Links (i.e. Red Scarf), access to four-, five-, and six-way spreads.
1d) Due to various personae portraits, a certain Full Moon scene, oh, and shooting yourself in the head in order to release the demons so that the characters can fight evil.
1e) http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/game/937269.html

Persona Fusion & Skills
2a) Yes, Fire Boost stacks with Fire Amp, Ice boost stacks with Ice Amp, the Mjollinor Hammer (Electric Boost) stacks with the Indra Bracers (Electric Amp), etc. However, it should be noted that the skill Ailment Boost does NOT stack with Fear/Poison/Charm Boost, and two Boosts/Amps of the same element will NOT stack (i.e. Wind Boost and the Sarnga Bow).
2b) http://phorte.ph.ohost.de/home/Java/personanalyzer/persona.html
2c) http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/937269/52531
2d) The fusion list in the FAQ's section is, frankly, quite bad. If you just want a list of fusions, use this: http://docs.google.com/View?docid=dgqvh67s_3cqv67gcz
2e) Either you're using a recipe from the original P3, or you're trying to fuse a persona that requires an item from one of Elizabeth's requests (i.e. Nata Taishi, King Frost, etc.)
2f) The inherited version of those skills are glitched, and not the good kind of glitched, either. Either deal with it or load your last save.
2g) Again, http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/937269/52531. Read the section on inheritance types.
2h) It should, but only for regular attacks. The critical rate up effect from the Moon Fusion weapon only applies to regular attacks, but Apt Pupil affects both skills and normal hits.

2i) Stackable: elemental Boosts & Amps, Invigorate/Regenerate 1/2/3. Also, the elemental resistance of your persona DOES stack with any elemental resistance your armor gives.
Unstackable: Ailment Boost w/ ___ Boost, elemental boost/boost or amp/amp, Counter/Counterstrike/High Counter, Growth 1/2/3
2j) This is the Mega Fusions Thread: http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=937269&topic=43269389
This is the Ultimate Fusions Thread from the P3 board, but note that certain fusions will not work as the fusion mechanics have been changed for FES.
http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=932312&topic=38814622

Social Links
3a) Save yourself from insanity and just use this guide by PenguinKnight: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/937269/52512
3b) No, Liz's date requests don't take up any in-game time, so go ahead.
3c) Sure, you be prepared to face the consequences if you screw up.
PK's FAQ explains it better than I possibly could: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/937269/52512
Ctrl + F: [FAQ010]
3d) It's quite possible, and there are people who have done it, but be forewarned that it is quite difficult. To have an easier time, go for a Max S. Link run on NG+, so that you won't have to worry about your status and leveling for Full Moons.
3e) Nope. Once you max a S. Link, you can ignore them forever and nothing will happen.
3f) If you have established a S. Link with the person you go with, you will earn points for the next rank. If you don't have a S. Link with them yet (or can't) it's just for character development.

Elizabeth's Requests
4a) http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/937269/52870
4b) Unfortunately, if you miss the day the request suggests you to talk to them, then
you can't finish the request.
4c) Again, you're out of luck, you won't be able to complete the request.
4d) No, you will not be able to complete the rest of the dates.

Tartarus & Party Members
5a) If you can, Armageddon it (unlikely). The other method is to
use either Odin's Thunder Reign or the fusion spell Thunder Call, which can be read
here: http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=937269&topic=43004533
Or you can use this strategy:
http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/search.php?board=932312&search=reaper+thunder+reign
5b) If you can get to the highest floor possible before the next Full Moon, then you're in good form.
5c) Shirt of Chivalry: Rare Chests on Floors 7 and 13
High-Cut Armor: Rare Chests on whatever floors they're on
Swimsuits: Buy from the Police Station after the beach trip
Everything else: Elizabeth's requests.
5d) In FES, a new requirement for Monad was created; complete request # 53.
You still have to reach the top of Tartarus, too.
5e) It's personal preference, really. Try everyone, and pick your favorites is my
suggestion.
5f) You could, but you won't be getting any exp if you're not in the battle with them. If you're high leveled so that you don't need to stay as a group, it would be better in general to fight with your party members at a higher floor.


Misc.
6a) Try getting a persona with good elemental resistances, and try to figure out the enemy's weakness. Don't forget to use Attack and Magic Mirrors if the battle is especially tough. If you feel you need one, there is a walkthrough. Look for "Episode Aigis" in this FAQ: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/932312/43991
6b) The answers are all in the following FAQ. Just find the date for the answers you need: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/932312/50034


Done.
