Richard Traxler's lead problem: 864 7 AKQ93 T763
Normally lead Q from AKQ. If you think it is possible for partner to have a void there (most of the time from the bidding you know this is not possible), lead A then K.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AQ92 KJT9853 98 ---
Must come as a huge surprise that second and third seats may bid differently.

Let's say you have a real good day. How do you plan to reach slam with that hand?

There is no dependency. Either both DBL are penalty, or both are takeout.
What is the best line of play?
"If the king of hearts is onside and the diamonds are 3-2, I'm always making even if I lose the diamond finesse." I am not sure that's an accurate statement. For starter, if spade was a stiff, you don't make it if J loses and diamonds are ...
Forcing or non forcing?
Treating 3 as forcing has obvious merits. However, most books on negative double say this 3 is highly invitational but not forcing. So, if I am playing with someone without discussion, I would assume 3 to show 5-5 shape and a good hand, but not absolutely forcing ...
