comment What is the pronunciation of 行 according to its context?
It's just a Chinese surname. And it is so rare that I don't know any famous person with this surname.

comment How to add emphasis to sentences
I think your translation is enough, no need to add emphasis. There is few modal particle can be used in an imperative sentence which represents a command. Usually the adverbial here expresses the emphasis. And 马上 is enough.

comment Placement of Pinyin in relation to characters
Check this post newsmth.net/bbstcon.php?board=Picture&gid=85363. There are some images of old textbooks in primary school in mainland China. Most Chinese born in 1980s and early 1990s used these.

comment Placement of Pinyin in relation to characters
As a native speaker, I don't know any standard about the Pinyin's place. But it is strange that you see Pinyin is below chars in beginner books. In China main land, I think everyone is familiar with the "above" version when educated. Maybe the books you see is written for foreigners.

comment Etymology of 其他
The most oldest record I can find now is from 国语. In chapter called 晋语四, 民生安乐,谁知其他?. It is considered this book is written in late 春秋 or early 战国 period. Maybe around 5th century B.C.

I don't think so. And this reason is not sufficient enough. In history, Chinese has a great influence on Japanese. But the converse is much less.
