comment Should I prefer versatility or a longer focal length for wildlife photography?
When you're in a dusty environment and you don't want to change lenses, you may find a longer range zoom results in more keepers than a prime plus extenders.

comment Lens and tripod for deep space photography
I edited your question to show that you considered the AstroTrac. I don't usually click every "this" link to see what "this" means. :)

comment Which one would you suggest to buy from canon, the 550D or the 50D ?
At one point, I had a Rebel (400D) as a backup. It was the best quality for that size at the time. I ended up selling the 400D and buying a 40D because of the wheel on the 40D. The lack of a wheel on the Rebel series means that shooting in manual is a pain. You have the same dial to turn, and it affects either the shutter or the aperture based on whether you have another button depressed while you turn it. It's like playing Twister with your fingers. :)

comment Buy Fujifil XE-1 (or Fuji Xpro) or Full Frame? for professional portrait shsooting?
"An SLR makes a statement that a mirrorless does not." Exactly. The business of photography is more about business and less about photography than many would-be pro photographers might initially think. I would not choose a mirrorless for a portrait business until you are so well established that you have your own brand.

comment how to backup large amounts of photos at home?
Why not online? I have been using Amazon s3, and I'm now transitioning to Glacier because it's even cheaper. I have 150 gig on S3 and 220 gig on Glacier. By the time I'm done transitioning, I'll have 400 gig on Glacier that costs me $4/month to maintain. The only cheaper, but less convenient, way that I know of is to store USB drives in a bank deposit box. I have several of those, too. :)

comment Are cropped images from a full-frame sensor equal quality to full APS-C images despite the lower resolution?
I believe your opening sentence is incorrect, unless you're comparing the same sensor generation. The pixel size on the original Canon 5D is larger than the pixel size of the Canon 1D4. The latter has better light sensitivity and lower noise at higher ISOs.

Did you search for the renaming questions that already exist? Maybe add to them instead of starting a new one.

comment Which impacts the speed of focusing more, the lens or the camera body?
Why are you asking the question? Are you wanting a theoretical speculation, or are you trying to make a real-world decision?

comment What type of camera is used to photograph marathon finishers?
Are they automatic, or are they remote controlled? The ones I've seen are the latter. If you're just shooting a time lapse at the finish line, you'll miss most of the key moments.
