comment Are there any words that have opposite regional meanings?
Cute story, but not really relevant to the question, as neither word has the opposite meaning in different regions. (coger doesn't mean "to drop" in some places).

comment “You look good” versus “You smell good”
Who says "Sabes bien" is unlikely? I use that phrase all the time!! :P

comment Are there cases when I can mute last s?
I notice this often when people say "Buenas noches" and it sounds like "Buena noches."

comment Is “$5 pesos” proper form in Spanish?
Yes, it's common in English in the U.S., too. It drives me nuts. If I had faith in "professionals" to be correct, I wouldn't have asked this question. :)

comment Is there an idiomatic equivalent in Spanish for “to have other fish to fry”
Welcome to Spanish.SE! We're all glad you're here. This isn't a bad answer, but it could be improved with some additional explanation.

comment What is the role of the “le” in the sentence “Miguel le dio a su novia un anillo.”?
Nice answer. I wonder if some explanation of why it is required is possible (if there is a logical reason).

comment Describing stress in Spanish
"pesado" (heavy) is commonly used in my experience to explain "stressful" situations. As in Tuve un día muy pesado. or Mi trabajo es muy pesado. All variations on the same theme, though.

comment How big are the regional differences in the Spanish spoken in different countries?
It is hard for me to know precisely what is being asked here. There may be a good question (or several) here, but this reads like "Lets discuss all regional differences" which isn't a good fit for the Q&A format. I also see several related, but distinct, questions. I wonder if you might be able to narrow down your question a bit to make it a bit more concrete and easier to provide a specific answer. Perhaps multiple questions are called for.

By the way, welcome to Spanish.SE! :)

comment What is the meaning of the phrase “¿Cómo ves?”?
It's clearly simply "cómo ves?" when it's written to me, but that doesn't mean it's not just a shortened form of "cómo lo ves?".

comment Good *extensible* dictionary software?
Linguistics might be another place to ask, especially if you're interested in non-software answers. But in an case, be careful not to make it a "list" question, as those are generally off-topic across the entire SE network. Please be sure to read their FAQ before posting there, too, to be sure this sort of question would be welcomed there.

comment Good *extensible* dictionary software?
Furthermore, it's not really a Spanish, per se, but more a software question, and as such I might suggest asking a similar question over at Superuser, with a slight rewording to ask for "How can I organize my personal dictionary entries?" rather than asking for a list of software recommendations.

comment Good *extensible* dictionary software?
Welcome to Spanish.SE! We're all glad you're here. This question probably isn't really a very good fit for this site, as it appears to fall under the category of a "list" question (see faq)--that is, there could be multiple, equally correct answers.

comment How to respond to ¿Cómo estás?
Welcome to Spanish.SE! We're glad you're here! However, this sounds to me like a general translation question. What are both (bien and muy bien) for? is asking for a Spanish to English translation. How do you say ok? or not so good? is asking for an English to Spanish translation. I am closing the question, until it can be cleaned up or modified to be asking for more than a simple translation, which any dictionary, or google translate can provide, and is off-topic per the FAQ.

comment How do you say a “shot” referring to alcohol?
@Rachel: I had the same concern, but was told numerous times the word was 'shot', and I can attest to personal experience that "Quiero una mocha grande con cuatro shots" works at Starbucks, without any funny looks. :)
