comment Will a SATA SSD drive work in WWAN (miniPCIe) slot?
I think 'PATA' miniPCIe SSDs can be put in non-SATA slots but they'd be slower and you may have trouble finding one with a decent capacity. Never used one.

comment What are differences between an instruction set architecture (ISA), and a machine language?
ISA might encompass a bit more than assembly language per se, for example things like defining the behavior of registers, quirks with instructions not necessarily obvious from mnemonic, how interrupts are handled, etc. Not sure there is too much real difference between the terms ISA and assembly.

comment How is DOS able to resume after running a real-mode flat memory model program?
DOS is always in memory. Completely unprotected of course, so a program can overwrite DOS either by accident or intentionally. I recall when reviewing DOS API functions that one of them is used to terminate the current program (you don't just RET though you might if it's a COM file and not an EXE). It will then give control back to the calling program.

comment How to Set up virtual Windows on Linux for remote users
On VMWare, for example, set the virtual NIC for the VM to Bridged as opposed to NAT. It then gets an IP from DHCP as though it's a separate NIC, so then set a reservation in your home router so it gets a fixed IP, and then you can remote into it via Remote Desktop.

comment How to Set up virtual Windows on Linux for remote users
Not really sure if running QEMU (which uses KVM) on top of a linux OS that you use as well is better, or if running two OSes under Xen (which uses KVM) is better. QEMU might be finicky with Windows, e.g. USB devices and such. VMware will have better and easier support. You probably have to try them both and see which works better, but I'd probably go with the first one just because I don't know a lot about Xen. Also I think the feature you are talking about is PCI-passthrough, not VGA passthrough. Not sure if recent QEMU versions support that yet. VMware probably does.

Questions seeking learning material recommendations are off-topic because they become outdated quickly and attract opinion-based answers. Also, unless your hardware supports IOMMU or I/O virtualization you will not get near-native gaming performance.

comment How to make a backup copy of a DVD?
Software recommendations are off topic, so I edited the question to be more general - i.e. ask how to accomplish what you want.
