Re: Active v. Middle Voice

If you check page 91, at the beginning of Unit 11. Mastronarde explains the middle voice pretty clearly, I'd say.
In you (plural) were leaving, the agents do not act with particular reference to themselves, to their possession, or
interest. It must be active.

Re: Unit 15, Part IV, #3

Smyth grammar 1150
[*] 1150. A predicate noun has no article, and is thus distinguished from the subject: καλεῖται ἡ ἀκρόπολις ἔτι ὑπ᾽ Ἀθηναίων πόλις the acropolis is still called ‘city’ by the Athenians T. 2.15.

Re: τε?

Yes, it's 100% legal.

Regarding your translation:

"It is necessary for Hercules to conquer the lion in Nemea and the giants and the monsters throughout Greece.

It's OK to be literal when translating, but at least words should be ordered as it is natural in English.

Re: Gratitude?

The nominative is the subject case, the accusative the direct-object case. We (subject) have gratitude (direct object). Hence, the accusative.

Re: Gratitude?

χάριν is declined, since it is accusative of χάρις. I guess you expected a χάριτα, but the most common form is χάριν.
On the other hand, finite forms of verbs are not declined but conjugated (ἔχομεν).

Re: Five fresh Latin sentences....... but are they right?

Cicero's example is not about the use of si, but about the use of accusative and infinitive after dubium. It's you who didn't look at it.

Since you want to preserve Ciceronian purity, why don't you provide examples from Tullius with explorare utrum. I found zero not only in Cicero but in any other author as well. And I couldn't plug any with num either.
