comment Two-character homonyms with same meaning
Please read you own link. "In non-technical contexts, the term "homonym" may be used (somewhat confusingly) to refer to words that are either homographs or homophones." My question only makes sense if the word is broadly construed so I don't think there's any danger of confusion.

comment Two-character homonyms with same meaning
In your last list: the last pair are synonyms? The first pair are homonyms? I started to edit my post in response to your observation, but the plain meaning of "homonym" is "a word with the same sound [as another word]." The plain meaning of "synonym" is "a word with the same meaning [as another word]." My example consists of a two-character word, same syllables, same tones, that (in some dictionary) have the same basic meaning. After thinking about it I think the question is clear. The word "homophone" is used in a general and non-technical way. The Wiki entry seems to support such usage.

comment Use of “是不, …” to introduce sentence
Yep, exactly. Thanks for the effort. I also think you are right about the slightly northern dialect, but that's way beyond my discernment at this point.

@PJ.Hades: I have added a source. There are many instances in this series of the same usage and similar translation.
