    There are no connections in the Junction Box-I deliberately avoided cutting the cable. The box
    is connected to the panel with metallic flex and there is a separate ground from the panel to
    the Junctio...

    Could be a fault in the line from the junction box to the breaker.Try leaving it disconnected
    in the junction box and turning it on. See if it still trips.

    I switched all my 16:1 units to 32:1 mix regular gas.

    One remote would not be a good idea. If for some reason they got out sync(one light on, one
    light off) you would be in trouble.

    Sounds like you need a sump pump not a radon fan.

    Sounds like a loose connection.

    The pull string light would have constant power so yes you should be able to pull power from
    that.Also if the power comes in the light fixture where the switch connects you could be able
    to pull power...

    The black that comes from the cable with the white that is connected to the blacks is the
    switched hot coming back from the switch.

    You are probably correct about a receptacle being controlled but you found the wrong
    receptacle. Look for one with a white connected to a black to send power to the switch.

    Code requires the wood of the wall to be 6 inches above grade.The only proper way to do it
    would be to cut the lower part of the wall off and replace with concrete blocks.

You were right about the neutral reading 120 V with ground, the neutral could not have been in contact with hot anywhere because that would cause a short and trip the breaker
