Is there really halachic grounds for a chumrah not to have a double oven one dairy and one meat because they share a vent.

I do not know the source, but I do know of a prominent dayan on the Eida Chareidis that holds that way.  When I bought a double oven with a hechsher, he told my husband that we still should not use the two ovens for different things (even if one is parve) since steam inevitably passes from one to the other any time one opens the door of a hot oven.  He doesn't hold that the hechsher isn't valid, but he personally holds that it is better to avoid the issue.

 I purchased a box of kind bars for $26 in a kosher jewish grocery store, used the bars/ate them.
  Then i said to myself why pay $26, when i can buy the same box for $12 on Amazon.
   I'll buy the same box on Amazon for $12 and return the same box with an even later expiration date to the store for a $14 refund.
 Is such permitted to be done?

I don't think that halacha automatically applies to the OP question here.
A hotel minibar is selling you convenience.
The $50 seller has a set return policy. He gets back the same item he sold you. Even if it's not he exact one he sold you.
IMHO almost every time you buy some thing for a higher price, there is some sort of convenience built in to the price. Whether it's a Brick & Mortar store vs. shipping, bigger selection, location, or nicer store, there's a reason that they can get away with that price (and possibly that you bought it there to begin with).

Just for an (extreme) example: One year, my window unit A/C broke on one of the hottest days of the year. So, I ran to Home Depot (which is the closest store that I knew would have the right BTU) and bought it for $550. I immediately installed it. If I would then find the same model online (minimum 2 days shipping) for $450 and return that one to Home Depot, that would be taking advantage of HD's convenience and not paying for it which is the same as the BHI case of the Hotel mini-bar.

In other words: they don't care to have a later expiration date product, they prefer the item sold.

 Can one use a hot water spout connected to ones sink on pesach? Hot water spout?
  Or better question, any way to kasher an plastic urn used all year round? The strainer in the middle is where the zeyah goes back up into.

Don't see any problem. Clean the button well and enjoy.

Cold should be fine, Hot is probably problematic.

Strainers are a thing that typically can't be kashered.

According to this, yes. Since he's still בכור לנחלה.
