comment Are there sentences where 跟 and 和 are interchangeable?
In general, "和" is more similar to English word "and", while "跟", on the other hand, is less formal or even cheesy sometimes. "跟" may reflex the relationships between "我" and "朋友" as "我跟朋友去公园了" may mean "I went to park with my friend" where I actually followed his/her lead.

comment “小王” 和 “老王” how to determine which to use?
No worries. May also add the usage of nickname "老X" among close friends without obvious distinction between ages. ;)

In 3. , by "mush big" do you mean "much bigger"? Even it is "much bigger" I still cannot get the point here. :P

comment Classical Chinese Literature - What languages could be written with it? And why?
@Falko That is interesting. Not sure if that is easy/easier to directly learn classical Chinese. But all in all, one still need to learn the characters, basic rules, etc. And I would not say it is another different language, but it does have its far distances from the modern one. Not sure at all, but perhaps the relation is similar to the one between Old English (or Latin?) and English.

comment Classical Chinese Literature - What languages could be written with it? And why?
@Falko I hope it does not cause any misunderstanding. Just from my impression, your question seems to come from the assumption learning classic Chinese may help you to learn modern Chinese and other languages such as Japanese. I thought that is one of the reasons why you want to learn classic Chinese. However, I just wanted to provide you with some 'facts' that this may not be the case because classic Chinese is really hard even for native Chinese speaker and seldom generates too much benefits in real life practice.I would recommend learning Chinese to a considerable high level first.

In such situation, it is very common that your parents in law call him "小珠". But, normally, in my personal experience, the younger generation will not call him "小珠" but something like "珠叔". BTW, "珠" is a very rare family name as I never know a person with this family name. :)
