Thanks!

So, just to be hella pedantic about it, because those special attacks cost initiative they cannot be used while crashed?
Right.

Along similar lines, could one use such an attack even if the cost put them into negative initiative, like using the one which costs 2i and putting oneself into -1 initiative?
No, you can't spend yourself into the negatives.

What’s the timing on activating Hopping Firecracker Evasion and Unassailable Body of Fire? Must they both be activated when you declare defensive charms, or can they be used in response to being missed by 2+ successes?
After the attack roll.

Can one use special weapon attacks based on tags (smashing, piercing, chopping) while crashed?
You can't spend Initiative while crashed, but tags that don't require spending Initiative can still be used.

Just the one.

Right.

And if I Slam/throw for the same disarm gambit I also directly roll my initiative for the gambit adding 1 die per turn of control forfeited. I have this right ?
I'm not sure a throw or slam makes sense as a gambit.

(If so, I have no idea what to expect from such an Exigent. I guess they could have mirror/reflection-themed Charms, but that seems a little too boring.)
If the Storyteller has interesting ideas for that.

That's a good way of putting it.

Was the Exigence "intentional"? By which I mean, when Autocthon and the Incarnae were creating their Exaltations (though I suppose I should also question if Autochthon was involved in 3ed), was there "some left over" and they decided to make use of it, or were the blank exaltations intentionally created for the use of other gods?
There's no such thing as a "blank Exaltation." The origins and nature of the fires of Exigence will be touched on briefly in Exigents: Out of the Ashes, but we won't go into any great detail; if the specifics of the Divine Revolution's events are germane to the story being told at your table, you're better served with free rein to invent the specifics yourself.

That is, would a Lunar wearing Seven Furies Caged turning into a kitty cat have to be covered in silver plates, spikes, and bits of bone?
Not as written, but it's probably fine to do that in your game as no one is cheesing it to reflexively remove armor for combat hax purposes.

Are spirits inherently aware of the business' legitimacy?

​Because in one of my games, I allowed an Eclipse PC to bluff her way past some ghost guards by flashing her Caste mark and saying she was sent there to perform maintenance. (She was not sent there to perform maintenance.) I figured the ghosts, not knowing if her business was legitimate, didn't want to run the risk of being cursed by Heaven for attacking her.
Spirits don't have an intrinsic legitimate business detection awareness, unless you count "trying to attack or breach decorum and seeing whether or not that's possible."

They don't eat literal hearts.

Their Charms are a monstrous inversion of what they once were.

Sure. 10char

What determines whether an Eclipse's business is "legitimate" for the purpose of their diplomatic immunity? Can an Eclipse fool spirits into thinking they are there on legitimate business when they're just trying to get close enough for a kill? Or does the protection not work if the Eclipse tries to use it with the intent to betray their host?
Legitimate business means actual legitimate business. You can't say "Fakharu sent me to audit your spirit court" and gain diplomatic immunity unless Fakharu has indeed sent you to audit that spirit court.

You can attack your host while on legitimate business. However, as stated in the last sentence of the anima power write-up, doing so voids your diplomatic immunity. Likewise, while your host cannot attack you without just cause while you have diplomatic immunity (as per the second sentence of the power write-up), the flip side of this is that if you do provide just cause, she can indeed attack you. If you're planning an assassination and your host gets wind of it before you make the attempt, that's a pretty just cause.

No; the Exigence responds only to gods.
