Why couldn't they? Life state-changing elixirs aren't banned in the rules and witches are allowed. If there's something I'm missing, let me know.

Rules say life state changing elixirs may be used on non-heirs, so I wasn't sure if that implied they are banned for heirs.

Yes

Correct.  Life state changing elixirs is not banned for this dynasty, and witches are allowed.

Rules say life state changing elixirs may be used on non-heirs, so I wasn't sure if that implied they are banned for heirs.

Not banned, you can use elixirs but need to follow the rules for the heir, meaning no fairies, no werewolves, no vampires, no simbots.  Witch is ok.

I was just wondering about the Family Collection. I'm planning to do fish as one of my 4 but do the fish all need to be different or could I have 4 deathfish?

You can have all 4 deathfish.

When I move to Town #2, can I move into a giant unfurnished house with all that leftover money from Town #1 before setting my funds back to $4k?

Yes, you can pick as big a house as you can afford, make sure it is unfurnished, then set your funds to 4k.

Can keep everything that comes in the unfurnished version of the house.  So yes, don't have to sell your toilet.  ;)

Sorry to spam!  Can we buy empty lots to convert into shops and/or resorts or are we limited to existing properties and buildings?

No its ok, you are keeping me occupied, that's a good thing. 
For resorts, yes you can buy empty lot and convert to resort.  Remember you have to full owned and upgrade it to 5 stars for the moving requirement.
As for shops, what shops do you have in mind?

Savvy seller content shops from Midnight Hollow

That you will have to wait sorry.   The team is currently doing some testing before we can approve this.

I myself don't have midnight hollow, can't test it.  Anybody here have any input for the savvy seller collection?  Does it affect any dynasty gameplay you can see?  I know from watching commercials that you can open / setup stores to sell basically any items.

Do the anniversary plaques that you get from work count as career rewards?

I can't see it really affecting dynasties too much. The most it does is provide a good way to make money.

@ombradellarosa

Does the shop have levels?  Like resorts can be upgraded to 5 stars, can this self owned shop be upgraded?  Job levels?

You own a shop the same way you own any other property. The level of the shop is entirely dependent on what type of lot it is, so the upgrade requirements will be the same as any other lot of the same type. It is entirely independent of anything the Savvy Sellers Collection brings to the table. As for job levels, there are none. Working the register is similar to tending a stand or running another register, it's not a job.

To build the family graveyard, do I just have to buy an empty residential lot?

You can build your family graveyard on the same lot you start on.

Do the best friends still have to be best friends once the hair is born or just at the time the Sims try for a baby? It's just because one of my Sim's best friends is an elder and I'm worry she might die.  :-\

You need to maintain the friendship during "try for baby" and also throughout the whole pregnancy (3 days).  Once the next heir is born, your friendship can decay. 

For the elder situation, you can always find another best friend (have 3 best friends), just in case one dies on you before the next heir is born.
