Is offensive Salamence still viable in OU? Maybe a Choice set? And if I do use Band, should I use Fire Fang or Fire Blast?

No

How good is the Ice-Type versus the Fairy-Type? I mean, they both are strong against Dragon-Types, who I hear practically almost rule the roost.

I mean, the Ice-Type I hear is totally horrible for resistances, but is a good offensive Type.

But the Fairy-Type has better resistances, and hits some crucial Types for Super-Effective damage.
It's better to be a fairy type than an ice type, but it's better to have ice coverage than fairy coverage if you're neither

1) Is Stone Edge viable on Mamoswine?
2) I have a Bold Vaporeon with Ice Beam, how much SpA do I need to OHKO offensive Dragonite through Multiscale?

1) I would assume so for EdgeQuake purposes and to catch a Talonflame on the switch.
2) It's not happening; 252 SpA Vaporeon Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Multiscale Dragonite: 176-208 (54.4 - 64.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Is 20-24/31/25-29/31/5-9/31 with a Rash Nature good for Cosplay Pikachu? 'Cause I'm trying to get Cosplay Pikachu that's good for battles and contests.

CP is not viable, not even in the lower tiers, afaik. But if you were to use it, those 3 stats are the mandatory 31s and Rash is OK (I would maybe do Naive, not sure since I only play OU these days)

Is WOW viable on lead SR Heatran to suprise the likes of Azumarill and Gyarados on the switch? My Heatran has Fire Blast/Dragon Pulse (Fire+Dragon is a very good combo thought I'm not sure about this moveslot)/WOW/SR; also, what Pokemon benefit from Heatran's presence as opposed to other offensive SR users? Also, is SRGross still viable?

Is ScarfGyara with Moxie and Spin support viable? If so, would Waterfall/SE/EQ/Ice Fang would supply the best coverage? I'm drawing inspiration from gen5 MoxieMence.

Is offensive Vaporeon viable? That 110 base special attack is just too good for it not beeing viable IMO; suggest me a set and EV spread.

Neither of these are viable
