Am I meant to find Blood Skulls out of the City of Skulls? I have found two. 1 in Angel of 100 and 1 in the regular game.
They're exotics, so I'd say so.

All exotics and uniques can be found at any point, barring minimum floor requirements. Uniques (should) appear only once per game, as long as you picked up that unique.

The only equipment that can only be found in certain levels are artifacts, denoted by a yellow character. There are currently only four of said items, so you probably know what they are.

The nuclear BFG and plasma rifle can be overloaded into a nuke. Does it detonate immediately, or is there a countdown like with the nuclear bomb?
Other than the Trigun's alt reload, all nuclear devices manually activate on a 10-second timer. (So if you didn't know about Trigun, there you go.) On the other hand, it's not a good idea to be activating one while standing on acid or lava...

I have a quick question about Longinus Diamond Badge.
"Longinus Diamond Badge - Complete Unholy Cathedral on N! without Brute"

Can you take the Brute trait after UC or do you need to finish the game without it?

The badge is checked when leaving the UC. After you have left the UC, you are free to take some levels in Brute; you will still get the badge.

Heh, that's actually a good question. If you know a thing or two about nukes, you might think that nothing happens, since the reaction never occurs. It turns out,

When dodging, do you have to be actually perpendicular to the attack, or does it work regardless of angle (as long as you're not moving on the same trajectory as the attack)? I never was sure about that.

On a successful dodge roll, the enemy will target the square where you started your last turn. So, the move doesn't have to be exactly perpendicular, but it can't be along the path of the projectile.

It turns out,

Exactly as I figured but was too lazy/busy to try and figure out.

Does the same thing happen if enough damage is done by an explosion covering its square, or if by some contrivance the square turns to acid/lava while it's deployed?

Ah, thank you kindly.

Do different weapons/attacks have different dodge rates? I've noticed that, for example, I can dodge pretty much all of one Baron's or one Knight's attacks save one or two, but former humans with pistols hit far more often.

Yes. Some actual data on these differences can be found here (I don't know if some of the notes are correct, but the numbers definitely are).

Also, in general, try looking at the wiki before asking a question here: it's usually faster for everyone involved. (Often this is a good place for more obscure information.)

Okay, thanks! I only started leafing through the wiki recently, so I wasn't exactly sure if the info I was looking for was there. Thanks again

For Gatekeeper Platinum ( "Pass the Hellgate on N! w/o taking damage" ), what exactly does that mean?

In a recent N! AoRA attempt, I think I stacked enough invulnerability to run through Hellgate without taking damage, but I did not get the badge. Only thing I did other than running was pick up a Large Health Globe at the beginning to get my health up, but I did have Badass so there shouldn't have been any health loss. Projectiles did "hit" me and caused knockback, but pretty sure I didn't take damage.

For Gatekeeper Platinum, I suspect the issue is that the badge is disabled if the level is nuked (as with some other high-end level specific badges). I might consider unfortunate combination with AoRA a bug. ):

Health decay from more than 100% health doesn't count as taking damage.

Ah, thanks for the response. Would've been nice to have something to show for getting so far on the first try, then dying because the RNG decided to hide the stairs in a corner somewhere.

Just wanted to make sure it is really "taking no damage" not "taking any direct hits" or something strange like that.
