comment What's the correct Spanish word to mean “as” in this context
"cuando" also works here: Preguntó John cuando Mary tomaba sus llaves It is also relevant to notice Preguntó needs accent (tilde) otherwise it would say: ..going? I ask John as Mary.. which doesn't make much sense.

comment Is “¿Qué hora es?” or “¿Qué horas son?” preferred?
I'm from México and I always ask "Que horas son?" I recognize "Que hora es?" as the correct way though. So I think both are admisible.

+1 for "¡¿Que horas son estas de llegar?!" :)

native spanish speaker here, they are 100% interchangeable for me in that phrase.

comment Why is the “X” in México and Texas pronunced as the letter “J”?
-1 Not even close. Medieval spanish used X instead of J for pretty much anything. When spaniards arrive to America, they named whatever they heard with the sound of J as X. Hence, Mexico instead of Mejico, Oaxaca instead of Oajaca,etc. Those old names remained even though spanish language evolve to use J instead of X
