John you are like a proverbial machine gun of questions
My choices of glue
Laminating - depends what you are laminating, but Aerolite 306 is good
Mortice and tenon doors - Titebond 3 or Polymite (epoxy or Polyproof if extremely exposed)
End to face MDF - I doubt you could get any glue to work without adding biscuits or the like
