comment What's the main difference between 为 and 是?
Maybe: 爲 is dynamic, 是 is static? 爲 and 是 vs 爲 and 也 as in Classical Chinese.

No, that's not necessary. You will never care about them if you are pretty skilled.

筆 in 一筆錢 is a 量詞, just like what 支 does in 借支筆. In general, you need to find 量詞 out in a sentence first. Well, native speakers don't often have trouble, but sometimes too. The solution is to stress a word. In 借支筆, it's a quite common phrase, so we never think it would be about money ;-) but, there are other phrases which have the same meaning, "借根筆" "借個筆". These are even more common than that one!

comment What's the difference between 房子 and 屋?
also means home while 房子 only means house and room, though it's a dialect usage... 来我屋瞧瞧 (come to my home and take a look) 来我房子瞧瞧 (come to my room and take a look).

comment Why Cantonese is considered as a dialect of Chinese?
@StumpyJoePete Yes, so "all languages in China are dialects of Chinese" is wrong.
