Better to use an anniversary night certificate, or book a category 4 for 12,000 points??
Anniversary night. #1 they expire. #2 they usually go for $125 which is less than the value of 12,000 points.

If you cancel an award reservation, does it go back into inventory? (Instantly? At some point?)

IME with Hyatt Baha Mar it did not go back instantly. The room became available a couple days later though. Not sure if it was coincidence or the room going back into inventory.

I have a free hyatt night expiring in August. As long as I call before the exp. date, can I book a reservation for September, or only till end of August ?

Maybe not anymore.
There have been reports that Hyatt has become much more stingy with extending CC award nights.
Buy discounted gift cards from me.

My question is, is that considered an extension. Meaning, does the free night cert. have to be used for a stay before exp. or just to make a reservation before exp. ?

That. (At least officially. I'm sure someone's been successful using it for a stay after exp.)

What does this "guaranteed availability" mean?

Simple as it sounds, they must offer you a room. IME from trying to do this its always really expensive. Also every hotel has 5 days a year were they don't have do guarantee to diamond members. At least that's what some hotel told me.
