comment What Android emulators for Windows enable a webcam to be used as a front camera?
If that's where it fits: Go on, and good luck! But asking for software might better fit on SR, as I pointed out. Make sure to always check the SE sites /help/on-topic to figure if its a match.

comment Is it possible to disable 2g connections completely, while allowing 3/4g connections to continue?
I might need to leave the "affirmative answer" to someone else, but to me "LTE/WCDMA" sounds to be what you're after: LTE is 4G, WCMDA 3G. So "prefered" here means to take one of the two, as far as I understand this. Give it a try: Remember what it's set to currently, switch to "LTE/WCDMA", and watch your status bar. In the worst case, it shows "no connection" (if your carrier/SIM doesn't support the one or other), and you've got to "switch back".

The second one mentions an "USSD code" which opens a kind of service menu. What's in there depends on device and Android version, but usually it lets you fix it to 2g/3g and possibly also 4g (on devices supporting that). Have you checked that?

comment play audio over earpiece of android devices during call
This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?). Development questions are on-topic on our sister site Stack Overflow. You might also wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

comment What Android emulators for Windows enable a webcam to be used as a front camera?
Please note that recommendations like Is there an app for X are off-topic here (see What topics can I ask about here? for details). For where your question might fit better, you might want to look into Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions?. With the correct phrasing and details provided, you might try your luck at Software Recommendations.

Two questions you might wish to take a look at (of course on their answers, too): Simple way to toggle between 2G and 3G connection / How can I force 3G only on the Nexus S after the ICS update?

comment Extract Android Image from Samsung Galaxy S4 device
If both devices are identical, that could be accomplished via Nandroid. But as you're speaking about stock versions, it probably won't work for you – unless you're using at least a custom recovery.

comment Make calls remotely?
Theoretically: adb shell "am start -a android.intent.action.CALL -d tel:012345678" does initiate a call. So if your device can be connected via ADB and network (see e.g. my ADB app list for helpers on this), you could "make" a call that way. Unfortunately, this misses the part of listening and speaking – otherwise I had posted it as answer... (for details: my article ADB for end-users will go online within the next 6 hours ;)

comment Samsung Galaxy S3 not working after FACTORY RESET & HARD RESET
How long did you wait making sure it "stopped in the last 9 apps"? It sometimes can take a while to generate the DEX files, especially for larger apps on slower devices. If you interrupt the upgrade process, it has to be repeated on the next start (at least for those left-over "last 9 apps").
