  1.         I know it was mentioned before, but you really need a Steuerberaterin. 
  2.     Source : https://india.diplo.de/in-de/vertretungen/generalkonsulat3/-/2464272   Whether or not you'll be admitted to Germany depends on the position you've been offered.   https://www.bmi.bund.de/SharedDocs/faqs/DE/themen/bevoelkerungsschutz/coronavirus/reisebeschraenkungen-grenzkontrollen/IV-reisebeschraenkungen-im-aussereuropaeischen-luft-und-seeverkehr-einreisen-aus-drittstaat/wann-ist-die-zwingende-notwendig-der-Einreise-gegeben.html
  3.         How low is the salary? What would you be doing here? Are you vaccinated with a vaccine recognised in Germany?    At the moment the Embassy in India has very long processing times and priority is given to highly skilled workers who are needed to work on site. Furthermore, India is considered a high risk area and foreigners entering from there need a recognised vaccination and to quarantine on arrival. If your prospective employer is not willing to offer you a competitive salary including assistance with accommodation on arrival that meets the quarantine requirements, you should look for another position.

  4.   You don't need an immigration lawyer to apply for an exemption to the Schulpflicht, but rather a lawyer for Schulrecht. You should be aware that it is very difficult to obtain permission unless a compelling reason can be presented.     
  5.     I think your calculations are wrong, but taxes are not my area of expertise.    If you search @PandaMunich's posts, you should be able to find an explanation. I know she has explained this before.
  6.   Based on the info you've provided, I would deny your parents' application, but that is my personal opinion based on the laws currently in effect. However, I have no idea if the person processing the application might approve it. I think your chances are less than 50%.   Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer and this is not legal advice.

  8.       Although there are still many renters with old contracts and low rent in Berlin, it has become almost impossible to find cheap apartments with gardens (unless of course you have connections). When friends were looking for a place suitable for their two cats about 6 years ago they had many difficulties and ended up settling on a beautiful Altbau apartment with patio that is somewhat overpriced. Both of their cats have since passed away and they will probably be looking for someone to take over the apartment in the next few months. The only problem is that the apartment is not cheap.   What is your budget?  
  9. Thriving with 1 in 200.000 disease in Berlin

    Profile says Turkey.   There is also no indication of the OP's profession, however, unless the OP has the skills to warrant a six figure salary in Germany,  I don't see how Germany would be an option. On the other hand if the OP was such a high earner, it would be possible for him to afford better care in Turkey.

      It technically has nothing to do with the pre-existing condition, but rather the Wartezeit before claims can be made from the Pflegekasse.    Furthermore, although the premiums for the Pflegeversicherung are collected by the Krankenkassen, Krankenversicherung and Pflegeversicherung are separate and distinct insurances. Public health insurance is governed by SGB V and Pflegeversicherung is governed by SGB XI.   See §33 SGB XI for more info.

        It is not a matter of Krankenversicherung, but rather Pflegeversicherung. 
  12. Recommendations for orthopaedic surgeon

      He needs a Durchgangsarzt.   https://www.unfallkasse-berlin.de/service/suche-nach-durchgangsaerzten
  13. Where is he living now? Does his legal guardian approve of this plan? Or will he first need to prove that he can make his own decision? Is he German?   Depending on his circumstances there are different places where he can apply for assistance. 
  14.   I think the worst case is that someone spends hundreds of Euros on official translations and then finds out that the application can't even be considered because the minimum legal requirements have not been met.    I would advise anyone wanting to apply as a teacher (or in any other regulated profession) to determine the minimum requirements first.
  15.     This question makes no sense.    Zulassungsfrei means that anyone who has a HZB will be accepted. Usually over a third of the students who start in these programmes don't make it past the 1st semester.    The Abitur is the general Hochschulzugangsberechtigung (HZB) in Germany. The Anabin databank provides info on the most common foreign equivalents.    When you're in Munich I would recommend that you make an appointment at the Studienkolleg and ask them about your chances of getting admitted to the Studienkolleg as well as if they would let you take the Feststellungsprüfung as an external candidate. You should also ask for copies of past tests so that you can see what you'll be expected to know.
