comment Difference between 想 and 要?
This is a very old shape for 去, and currently not even used traditional Chinese (well, a search on web didn't return many normal articles). So I think it is safe to say that this character is not used in current Chinese. It should be only used to transcribe very old articles, when the character did take this shape.

comment How are Latin botanical names handled in Chinese?
The site you give is a dictionary for Chinese herbs. In traditional Chinese medicine, we use a lot of herbs. In this dictionary one can check the binomial name for the these herbs. These traditional names are used in traditional Chinese medicine, and only some of them would used in botany. They are not official Chinese names for species in botany.

comment Pronunciation of “因为”
I'm not arguing about your answer, just for your information: in Modern Chinese Dictionary(1996, a bit old ...), the pronunciation is listed as 'yīn wei' (neutral) or 'yīn wèi'.

comment How to indicate plurality/singularity
你是唯一的人来看我 is very unnatural (ungrammatical? I don't know). It should be "你是唯一(一个)来看我的人". "一个" here is optional.
