Just to be clear since I didn't see it explicitly stated somewhere, Abilities are able to trigger when a player does not have priority or is not about to receive priority. The trigger just waits until a player would receive and goes on the stack after SBA are checked but before the player actually does receive priority.
Once a trigger condition has been met it will go on the stack, even if the permanent it was on leaves the battlefield before it goes on the stack. This is why Blade of Selves will give you triggers off of legendary creatures. It is also why if you somehow have two Tamiyo's Journal on the battlefield before the start of your upkeep but after the last time priority is received before that point you will get both triggers. Phasing is the only way I can think of to do this.

You're very welcome.
The point of multiple threads for unrelated or tangentially related questions is that it helps others searching for an answer. Whether it be on a google search or perusing the answered questions, a concise title for a single question is more likely to be viewed. It also broadens the scope a bit from your specific deck to a more generalized topic to assist more people.
For example only 4 is really about the rules of cascade and only 5 is about the rules of EDH. 1 and 1' are about the interaction of Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and Chandra, Pyromaster. 2 is about if Xenagos, the Reveler's Ult counts as casting. 3 is about what constitutes a permanent entering the battlefield. If you had instead broke the question into five questions you are more likely to help a greater number of people via them reading your question and the answers to it.
I personally don't care too much about multiple questions in a thread. I am just a knowledgeable user though, not an administrator. Therefore; I am concerned about ensuring that the site contains fully correct and clear information instead of trying to streamline the site itself. I probably should have mentioned that the administrators prefer a separate post for each question but it wasn't as important to me as ensuring you had correct answers to all of your questions.

1 You are casting the card from exile, not your hand, so Yidris does not give it cascade.
1 2.0 (I assume there was a formatting error?) You are casting the copies from exile so again Yidris does not give them cascade.
2 You are putting the cards into play, not casting them, so they can not be countered and will not count as casting for any casting triggers. Yet again the cards are in exile too, so that is a second reason Yidris will not trigger on them.
3 Altar of the Brood cares about permanents entering the battlefield, so if the spell you cascade into is a permanent that eventually resolves, yes altar will trigger.
4 For the purposes of spells on the stack X is the declared number. So your hypothetical card has a CMC of 6 for cascade.
5 Land types in rules text do not count toward the color identity. So you could play all the panoramas or even Onslaught/Zendikar fetches in any deck.

Hmm looks like another thing I am going to not be participating in even though I would like to help the community.
