But are there any limitations on what the Solar can make? Seems appropriate that they can't make a Demon as those are specifically descended from the spirits of the Yozis, but can the Solar make an Undead creature? Can they make a God or an Elemental? Or is it always a unique and unclassified "spirit"?
The specifics of what labels you apply to the spirit aren't super important. You can definitely make elementals and gods. Making demons would be weird for the reason you point out, but maybe they can do it in a weird way. Making ghosts without any preceding alive person feels kind of nonsensical, but maybe you can make some other kind of undead spirit.

Turning people into animals isn't something you do effortlessly, and is a higher-Essence power.

Would it even be a bureaucracy if it worked efficiently and automatically? :P

If not, is the lack of a position/portfolio likely to cause problems for said God?
Same as not having a job would for any other god.

Question about Sparks Fly Together, an Evocation for Courante and Galliard from Arms of the Chosen.
The Evocation has two Resonant effects, marked with Resonant (Orichalcum) and Resonant (Moonsilver).
Do these resonant effects only apply if you are wielding the right weapon (so Orichalcum with Courante and Moonsilver for Galliard) or can you get both resonant effects if you qualify for both?
The former.

It has artifact weapons that don't require attunement costs and whatever its Evocations it can do.

(Devastating actions, too, although those usually won't be relevant)

As a custom and possibly isolated thing naturally
Human-level intelligent animals are already a thing that exist in the setting.

The warstrider pilot has access to an Artifact N/A's Evocations. The Lunar doesn't face any of the logistical issues of transporting, maintaining, or deploying a warstrider, and has access to various animal traits.

Oh! I hadn't realized that. So in the setting as it canonically exists, the Chosen of the Mongoose God can't be a very special mongoose?
Animal gods are a good place to use the "a girl and her familiar" Exigent set-up.

That's an Ambition 3 Solar Working, although I wouldn't let you duplicate a unique behemoth.

So based in this old post you described the attack from Single Point Form as reflexive, does that mean its compatible with Battle Anthem of the Solar Exalted, letting you swing on sword turns and maintain your song on your regular turns?
Yes, just like Peony Blossom Attack or counterattacks.

Not with 100% accuracy, so I won't speculate.

Sure. They're basically rules for making whatever you want. The Exigence itself, though, is limited to Exalting humans.

Weren't the Spoken supposed to be non-human exalted? I got the impression that it's less that all exalted have to be human and more that all exaltations are configured to work with a specific species, and that's human for all the ones that are still around. Except perhaps liminals which require a human corpse.
The Spoken are a weirdo exception — they aren't human, and a human could never Exalt as one of the Spoken. But for all the classic Exalt types, Exigents, the other new types introduced this edition, and the optional canon Exalted, you gotta be human.

Hmm, actually I have a question about that. Do the Liminals in fact have human souls? I don't recall seeing any indication of that, but I also seem to recall a statement that the exalted are all some form of human.
They're human, and I guess they have souls, so they have human souls.

For a... character I'm thinking of making...
Those aren't really Homunculi. Those are human souls in weird exalted bodies. I'm talking creations of life in a human form but physically isn't human. There's one in adversaries i believe
Exalting requires you to be human, not just have a human soul jammed in you.
