    I'm probably wrong but...

    What is the original chisel of the First Age we find while hunting Secret Stones?

    The Hair of Galadriel that is bound in a Crystal?

    She was born on Valinor and Gimli asked for a hair in Lorien to craft a heirlom for his kin.

    Yes, Galadriel originated in Valinor, but did Gimli have that hair in Moria? The Fellowship had not traveled on their journey that far yet, had they?
    And what gives you the idea that the hairs ended in Moria?

    No, that's not the question.

    Yes Angbohr!

    Gandalf's staff.
    It is true that I have no proof that the staff "originated" in Valinor, but I think we can safely assume that.
    We are never told where Gandalf got his clothing, hat and staff, but we can assume that he came over from Valinor fully equipped to operate.

    But we are told about the fate of his staff:

    ‘You cannot pass!’ he said. With a bound the Balrog leaped full upon the bridge. Its whip whirled and hissed. ‘He cannot stand alone!’ cried Aragorn suddenly and ran back along the bridge. ‘Elendil!’ he shouted. ‘I am with you, Gandalf!’ ‘Gondor!’ cried Boromir and leaped after him.
    At that moment Gandalf lifted his staff, and crying aloud he smote the bridge before him. The staff broke asunder and fell from his hand.

    Gratz! You once again have earned the honor of wearing the Jeopardy Jacket!

    (Jeopardy note: Adding a question mark to the end of a statement is not really "in the form of a question", but I refuse to be quite that picky. The most appropriate response would have been "What happened to Gandalf's first staff?" or, "What is Gandalf's first staff?" Art may be rolling over in his grave, but Alex would grin and run with it.)

    How to insult Durin's Folk at their own gates and get away with it.

    I know, I just hate these formulae and I'm consciously ignoring them - they reduce my life expectancy.

    About the origin of the Staff: there is an essay, the Istari, in Unfinished Tales. A passage within describes their appearance upon disembarking in Lindon, Gandalf is already equipped with his staff. So, either he carved it while at sea, or yeah, it comes from Valinor, which seems to make way more sense.

    What was the result of Azog's beheading Thror when he entered Moria, & throwing pieces of his body to the crows, & the last of the insult, a pouch containing a few coins of little worth thrown out to the Dwarves?

    A major insult, and more than an insult, yeah. But that resulted in Dain breaking his neck, so he didn't really "get away with it", in the end.
