Qur'an

The Quran (القرآن‎, romanized: al-Qurʼān, literally meaning "the recitation"), also romanized Qur'an or Koran, is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God (Allah). It is widely regarded as the finest work in classical Arabic literature. The Quran is divided into chapters (Arabic: سورة sūrah, plural سور suwar), which are subdivided into verses (Arabic: آية āyah, plural آيات āyāt).

There is no contradiction at all. Mary (Mariam in Arabic) is daughter of Imran as Quran mentioned (And Mariam daughter of Imran who guarded her chastity) (Sura 66, Verse 12). She is also known withing Bani Israel as sister of Haroon (O sister of Haroon , you father was never a bad person nor you mother was a bad woman) (Sura Mariam, Verse 16).

Joachim can be the name of Imran in another language.

Wassalam.

it is permissible. Actually it is recommended to read as much Qur'an as you can. However if you are in a process of memorization of Qur'an, you should try to balance your readings in a way that you are able to preserve your hifz and do not to get confused.

With prayers for your success.

There are many Hadeeths stating that Whoever memorizes Qur’an and acts upon it, Allah (SWT) will reward him and honor him greatly for that, so that he will rise in status in Paradise to a level commensurate with what he memorized of the Book of Allah.

The Hadeeth says : “It will be said in the Paradise to the person who recited Qur’an in his life: Recite and rise up in Paradise degrees according to what you recited. 

Memorizing and acting upon Quran will cause the person getting the Shafa'ah of Quran.

Wassalam.

"The one who memorize the Qur'an, and act upon it, is with the pure and noble scribes" (Thawab al-A'mal by Shaykh Saduq).

The one who reads the Qur'an and preserves it, is with the pure and noble scribes" (Sahih al-Bukhari)

The "pure and noble scribes" are specific angels whose company will be granted for the one who has memorized the Qur'an and acted upon it. 

The memorization of the Qur'an should be the first spiritual input in the believer's life and perhaps that is why in some areas of the Islamic world we see lot of emphasis on Qur'anic memorization put since childhood to the point that in some cases children of 4 years old become hafiz, masha'Allah.

The holy Prophet taught not only meanings and concepts from the Qur'an but also emphasized the role of the literal memorization of sacred terms and expressions. In doing so, he put emphasis on the primacy of divine word over human word. The teachings transmitted with a "human filter" are often not devoid of barriers that may hinder the full understanding of truth. In other words, it is Allah's word to take the the lead and not the human drive. To be able to live and act by the pulse of the Qur'anic verses in your heart is another very significant reward in this regard.

With prayers for your success.

Yes, of course, the Holy Qur’an and the Hadeeths have many instructions
about the discipline of speech.

1)    In Surah 2 : verse 83 Allah (SWT) says : “And speak good to
people”. Which means that the freedom of speech should not harm the
interest or respect of others.

2)    In Surah Israa' (Bani Israel) : verse 53 Allah (SWT) says : “And
tell my servants to speak in the best way because Shaitan verily tries
to create conflict among them. Surely Shaitan is the clear enemy of
man”.

3)    In Surah 41 : verse 34 Allah (SWT) says : “The good deeds are
never equal to the bad deeds. Repel the evil with the better one”.
Which means that we must avoid talking any bad with the excuse of
freedom of speech.

4)    In Surah 16 : verse 125 Allah (SWT) says : “Invite and call
people to the way of your Lord with wisdom and for preaching and have
debate with them in better way which means that we should keep fair
discipline for the freedom of speech.

In Hadith we have:

1)    Talk to people in the best way that you like them to talk to you
(Imam Mohammed al-Baqir (AS) in Tafseer al-Ayyashi vol 1 pg 48).

2)    Hadith in al-Kafi, vol 2 pg 63, from Imam Ja’far as-sadiq (AS)
that he (AS)  said: He is not from us who is not a good companion and
a good friend and who has not good morals with them.

3)    “Deal with people as you want them to deal with you and talk to
them as you want them to talk to you” (Jaami' Ahadeeth Al-Shia)

"...and speak to them honorable words" (4:5).

"Allah does not like the broadcasting of anyone's evil in speech except by someone who has been wronged" (4:148)

Knowledge needs to be recorded and Quran is the Word of Allah and must be recorded in a complete book to :

1. Preserve Quran from any change which some people may try to cause for political or other reasons. No doubt, Quran is preserved by Allah and no power can change Quran.

2. Make it easy for Muslims to recite, study, memorize and follow the teachings of Quran.

3. Make it easy for those who want to know about Islam to read Quran.

Quran is available in the form of book, as well as in the internet and digital forms.

Quran is complete, intact and unchanged. This is the faith of leading Shia scholars including Ayatullah Sistani, Ayatulla Al-Khoei, Shaikh Al-Sadouq, Shaikh Al-Toosi, Sayyed Al-Murtadha, Shaikh Al-Mufeed, Shaikh Al-Tabrasi, Shaikh Kaashif Al-Ghitaa' and thousand of Shia scholars.

There are some Sunni narrations from Umar and Ayisha that Qur'an which is available in our hands is not complete (Saheeh Muslim 1050, Musnad Ahmad 5:132, Al-Mustadrak 4:359, Al-Kashshaaf 3:518 etc), with few weak narrations in few Shia books,  but there is no values for such narrations. Our authentic evidence from Ahlul Bayt (AS) is unchallengeable that Qur'an is complete and intact.

the Qur'an does not approve the belief that Allah has taken to Himself a son. It says: "They said:- The Most-Gracious has taken to Himself a son-. Say:- You have uttered something hideous-. The heavens are about to burst on account on that, and the earth about to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in pieces because they have ascribed a son to the Most-Gracious whereas it does not behove the Most-Gracious that He should take to Himself a son" (19:88-92).

There are authentic Hadeeths that the person who dies on the love of
the Holy Prophet (SAWA) and who has the love of the Holy Prophet
(SAWA) and the Ahlul Bayt (AS) will die as a martyr. من مات على حب ال محمد مات شهيدا 

 This Hadeeth is narrated not only in Shia books but also in Sunni books like Tafseer al-Kashshaaf by al-Zamakhshari (volume 4),

Tafseer al Fakhr al–Raazi (volume 27)

and Tafseer al-Qurtobi (page 5841).

No doubt sincere followers of Ahul Bayt (AS) sincerely wish to gain
the status of being martyred in the way of Allah (ASWT) and that
sincere intention makes them entitled to the Grace of Allah (ASWT) who
grants the reward of Shaheed to them according to their sincere intentions.

Wassalaam.

You can seek help from learned persons who have studied Quran and Hadeeth in the Hawza. Not any student who spent few years in Hawza is  a learned person. You must be sure that you refer to really a learned person.
