Sane? I'm not sure I know what you mean.

Not by the published setting, no; it's an itinerary, not a list.

Can Demon of the First Circle which have been bound as slave by the Demon of the First Circle terrestrial spell be send back to Malfeas and conveniently called back when the sorcerer wants it.
What kind of action is needed?
Some kind of ritual?
No, there's no mechanism inherent in the spell that allows you to do that. But a Twilight Caste Solar can get an effect similar to you're suggesting (banishing and retrieving, albeit not banishing to Malfeas) with the third Twilight Caste anima ability (see p.176 of the 3e core book).

What's your favorite bugaboo you've written for Ex3 so far?
I'll go with Peremuz.

Vance, Eric, what can you tell us about the Guild Barber?
The only reference I can find to "the Guild Barber" is a single offhand comment by one of the old devs. I have no idea who he was intended to be. Sorry!

We have no specific plans at the moment to elaborate on Yatani's Children.

What areas in Creation are they most active in?
They're a widely scattered people; you can reasonably place a Yatani community in whatever area you're using for your game.

What Deathlord is active in the Dreaming Sea? Or most active, if there are multiple?
That's still up in the air. We won't properly dive into 3e Deathlords until Abyssals, but I'll make a note to see if there's anything relevant to specify in the Eight Directions Dreaming Sea material.

Eric, could you take a look at this question from earlier?
I'd rather not make any off-the-cuff statements on this until after I've had a chance to dig into Ysyr development. Sorry!

Speaking of, IIrc, there are canonically 13 Deathlords with some spaces left open for homebrew. Are you planning to fill that list out at all, since they’ll be inspiring Abyssal charms?
We've been discussing the possibility. (The resulting text would probably be less exact about the actual number of Deathlords to avoid some potential setting design pitfalls.)

[#][F] Eric Minton - 3/5/2020
Canonically there are "at least 23" Yozis. There's not much cause for us to provide that many canonical Yozi write-ups; the remainder are open for homebrew if your group desires, and otherwise can be considered inactive or irrelevant to your game.

Wind was the "bad" Zenith, as he's a heretic who fights the righteous Immaculate Philosophy. Sympathetic to us, but not to people in Immaculate-controlled areas.

Are any other previous canon NPCs coming back in Adversaries?
A few, although the vast majority of entries cover entirely new characters.

Champoor gets a full entry in Across the Eight Directions. Y'danna gets a postage-stamp entry in the Prasad chapter of Heirs to the Shogunate.

2) Will An Teng be in it, and if so, has it changed much from previous editions?
It's there, and based heavily on its presentation in Blood and Salt.

3) One An Teng related question. Do they speak Seatongue or Flametongue?
Not currently specified; we'll likely figure that out in development.

Is there a plan to revise Fehim? He's rather... unsympathetic, in his writeup in the Caste Book.
He's slated to appear in Adversaries of the Righteous, and he remains unsympathetic. Solar Exaltation doesn't guarantee decency or wisdom.

As to his original portrayal, the Caste books were largely written to each include one deliberately unsympathetic character, reflecting the Immaculate Philosophy's portrayal of that Caste as Anathema. Fehim exists for this reason alongside Lyta, Havesh the Vanisher, and Mirror Flag. (Not sure offhand about Zenith.)

That's a hard one! I'll go with Mokrelus, insofar as he was one of our inspirations for the Hearteaters.
