Re: C# Programming

The Windows 10 "IoT" version for Raspberry Pi 2 will be something very likely like the Windows for Intel Galileo - a minimalistic Windows build on which .NET/C# is available as a development platform with some SDK. On Linux there is Mono, but that's not the first choice for scripting Raspberry.

Re: why ras. pi have ethernet combined with usb unlike banan

They could have changed it for RPi2 but they didn't... But there is a lot of ARM single board computers with native Ethernet. Note that not every one has true/full Gigabit Ethernet.

Re: UDOO Quad vs Raspberry Pi and Arduino

Udoo is old, and isn't anything very unusual. If you have an Arduino board you can script it from any computer it can connect to. Udoo or Raspberry aren't required. If you electronics setup require also a single board computer then you can use one depending on your requirements.

More advanced RFID solutions will rather use more v...

Bluetooth low energy (4.0) or those UART and nrf24l01 dongles are pretty much low power. RFID is not designed for 2 side communication.

Depends what you have bought. Many USB reader/writer are USB-UART devices and you could use them by doing UART (serial) connection and sending/reading data specified in the SDK/docs. Other option is to use pyusb, you can check my examples: https://github.com/riklaunim/pyusb-keyboard-alike

Re: Start an Android App by pressing a button?

That can be done by profiles and NFC tag in the car too. If your phone doesn't have NFC then QRCode triggering the profile.

If you want a network between them then either you will have to configure WiFi direct connection or add WiFi access point. That will be more work, some codding etc.

On a good stack noise level should be very low and any random noise averaged out. FPN is usually removed by flat frame if any (CMOS).
