If you have agreed to the Mahr which was suggested by your husband or father-in-law, then it is valid Nikah. But if you rejected the Mahr before the recitation of the Nikah, you need to recite the Nikah again with an agreed Mahr between you and your husband.

Wassalam.

Regardless of whether it is permissible or not, supposing one of them was caught? What reputation would that give to the Shi'a living in that country? Why do they want the benefits of living in that country while at the same time not respecting it?

Yes you can as a Muslim study law in any part of the world to defend the oppressed. You must avoid supporting any wrong even if it is done under a legal cover.

Yes it is permissible to delay legal registration of marriage for legal requirements although real marriage is the Islamic marriage and all the rights and duties start from the Islamic marriage.

Civil marriage after Islamic marriage has no value as far as Islamic rules are concerned. It just confirms the marriage in front of the government offices.

Sharia law is for Muslims who believe and obey Allah and not for non Muslims.

When Muslims want to implement the Islamic law which is known as Sharia law, it is their decision and no one can object on them as we don't object on people who opt to follow their own way of legislation in any part of the world. It is part of the basic rights to believe in your own faith and implement it.

Holding a government position  in secular countries is permissible for Muslims as far as they don't indulge in injustice or sinful acts.

Yes it is permissible for husband's father to marry the mother-in-law of his son if she is widowed or divorced. Wife is Mahram for her father-in-law only not for his sons and husband is Mahram for his mother-in-law only not for her other daughters. This rule of being Mahram does not include the parents of the husband and wife. 
'Your mother-in-law must observe Hijab from your father but not from you. Obviously, when they are non-Mahram to each other, marriage between them is permissible.

It's fine as long as there is no secondary reason why they can't marry (for instance, they have a blood relationship that prevents it, etc.).

Anyway I think it is rather sweet. I hope they are all happy!

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Such matters should be for a legitimate Islamic government who can implement such hudud, or under an infallible as some scholars would state.  
 

One cannot take matters into their own hands. Even some ulema who may allude to doing so would forbid it if this caused a Muslim to go into harm or trouble which most likely occur. 
 

May Allah grant you success

One could refer to Article 18 of the Declaration of Human Rights as stating that all people have the right to practice their religion publicly or privately. However, this doesn't encompass all spaces (for instance, I can't go to my neighbour's house uninvited and just start praying); it can be construed as a general idea that people should have the overall right to observe their religion in their country.

Temporary marriage is the solution for sexual needs of human beings who are unable to have permanent marriage . It is the way to save them from sinful acts.

As the need was existing all the times, no doubt, the prophets have guided people to the same solution.

al-Baqarah, Verse 256.
