"Tha mo mhathair na boireannach glic."

There is an accent missing on a vowel: mhàthair

You can also say 'S e boireannach glic a tha mo mhàthair, o simply Tha mo mhàthair glic

Omission of the definite article before a role or title

Well, if your local council is "Comhairle Ghlaschu", the resolution of the puzzle is that "Comhairle" is not allowed to have an article, because it is followed by another noun. This has nothing to do with tone, it is a hard grammar rule.

Your analysis is correct.

nì is the future tense of "dèan" and also used to express capability/something that you do regularly.

Where does the "would" in "bu toil leam" come from?

"bu" covers 2 tenses, the past and the conditional. "is" covers both the present and future tenses. Watch our for the pronunciation of "toil" here too - it's actually toigh l' and pronounced /tɤl/, while the real toil is pronounced /tɔl/. The standard orthography made a...
