How would you pronounce Coibhean?

Transcriptions are correct. The bh used to be pronounced historically (which is why "Inbhir Nis" is "Inverness" as pronounced by English speakers, with a v), but in the modern dialects, it gets dropped.

Facal-toisich anns a Gàidhlig/Introduction in Gaelic

Yes, the only difference in pronunciation is that mhath is nasal, you don't really hear the final th. People often mix up bh and mh, I just wanted to make sure that you didn't fall a victim to one of these well-meaning but harmful sites.

How would you pronounce Coibhean?

You're pretty close, but the answer is "neither". I'd for /ɤi/

Coibhean /kʰɤivən/
Coibheantìn /kʰɤivənˈtʲʰi:n/

The second name violates the spelling rule, and also Gaelic stress which is always on the first syllable (unlike Irish). you could go for Coibheintin or Coibheantan instead.

Facal-toisich anns a Gàidhlig/Introduction in Gaelic

That's correct, but you mixed up mhath ("good" lenited) with bha ("was"). Beware of random websites - there are a bunch out there that have "Slàinte bha" as a phrase on them which is completely wrong, and they all copied the mistake from each other. Some of those sites ...

Help with tr*nsl*t**n from English to Gaelic

It's very common to tr*nsl*t* names if they have a Gaelic equivalent, and Alan is a Gaelic name.

Colin Mark 'Gaelic Verbs: Systemised and Simplified' book vs Taic website for learning verb tenses?

I don't have the book - I hope somebody else can chime in on this.

I'd like to have more stuff in our book reviews section, but it's been too long since I''ve been at a learner level where I could try them out for myself.

Copula Confusion

It is the only word in your swear filter, actually. People generally know how to behave themselves here, and we do want people to be able to ask how to call body parts etc. in Gaelic - those are legitimate questions.

Help with tr*nsl*t**n from English to Gaelic

Tha Inbhir Nis a' toirt taic ri Ailean Mac a' Ghobhainn le moit - Neo-eisimeileachd do dh'Alba

Excellent idea not to use Google - their English - Gaelic results are pretty unintelligible.
