This spiel was somewhat more important when we had faction missions.
"I'd like to make something perfectly clear. I have sworn oaths guaranteeing the safety of any prisoners I take with the flat of my glaive, and I will fulfill those oaths, even if it means opposing one of you. If any of you plan on killing slavers for Andoran, or putting an ex-lover of the Paracountess out of their misery, or revenging the death of a friend at the hands of Aspis agents, or what not, I'd like to know. I don't need, or even want to know, the full details. All I want to know is this: how can I tell who they are so I can avoid taking them prisoner in the first place?"

Some world-building questions that would need to be answered are: "Do gods in this world work in such a way that having one grant more domains than usual is doable? Does the number of grantable domains correlate with deific power?"
I'm not certain you would need to go as far as setting up specific, formal Clerical Orders or Aspects of the Deity to let monotheistic clerics pick from a large number of domains. It might read something like this: "For some reason, YourDeityNameHere grants his/her clerics certain combinations of domains and denies them others. Both domains must come from one of the following lists: DomainA, DomainB, DomainC, DomainD; DomainA, DomainD, DomainE, DomainF; DomainA, DomainB, DomainF, DomainG." How large the allowed lists are, how many total domains are granted, how much overlap between lists there is, etc. would depend on both world-building stuff about the deity and also game-balance considerations between pantheons.
I'm not 100% certain this is exactly what you were looking for, but it's close. It's in the CRB under the Magic chapter:

As has been stated upthread, the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign is one in which we hope that players are not reading ahead (either adventures or Chronicle sheets) in order to cherry-pick adventures based on a checklist of monsters they'd like to encounter or equipment they'd like to receive. As such, we consider discussion of such spoilers to be against the spirit of the game.
The Quick Runner's Shirt doesn't speed up the glaive, but it does answer the question "Any other thoughts on how we can get this thing going in the first round of combat that's not going to cost him his move action?". The player pulls the cord on the glaive (move action), moves toward the enemy (usually a move action, but the shirt lets you do it as a swift), and attacks (standard action) all in the same turn.

Well, your basic question is a good one, but remember that you don't actually get the benefit of ANY of your magic items while wildshaped. They temporarily meld into your new form and become nonfunctional, unless you take them off before you wildshape and put them on/pick them up afterward AND they are wearable or usable in the new form, which is seldom the case. So a belt bonus would normally be a moot point.
That isn't quite true.
When you cast a polymorph spell that changes you into a creature of the animal, dragon, elemental, magical beast, plant, or vermin type, all of your gear melds into your body. Items that provide constant bonuses and do not need to be activated continue to function while melded in this way (with the exception of armor and shield bonuses, which cease to function). Items that require activation cannot be used while you maintain that form.
Or Power Kill?
Pathfinders explore Golarion in service to lore. This widespread group of treasure hunters, thrillseekers, sages, and voyagers make it their lives’ work to uncover lost artifacts, map neglected ruins, and learn forgotten knowledge. They do these things for the sake of lore, as well as for fame. The Pathfinder Society publishes the Pathfinder Chronicles, a multi-volume series of chapbooks highlighting some of the most amazing finds by field agents.
Pathfinders are part archaeologist, part historian, and all adventurer. Many established Pathfinders make their own way in the world, following their interests or tracking down leads to greater mysteries. These established few are still subject to orders from their superiors, but the least prestigious tasks are usually reserved for those new to the organization (like yourselves). The Society is governed by the Decemvirate, 10 anonymous leaders who pull strings and guide the organization from Skyreach in the Grand Lodge of Absalom. They hand down orders from their secret posts to venture-captains, who in turn pass the orders to field agents.
The Society has few rules, but all Pathfinders are expected to perform the Three Duties: explore, report, and cooperate. Idle Pathfinders are useless to the organization, and agents must seek out secrets or further their work in exploration of some kind, always growing and gathering knowledge. This exploration would be worthless if not for frequent reports. Pathfinders must send back accounts of their adventures, many of which end up published by the Decemvirate. Finally, Pathfinders are great heroes from dozens of countries and backgrounds with thousands of different motivations and allegiances, and the Decemvirate expects that individual Pathfinders will not interfere with one another, and absolutely never let a conflict between themselves come to blows.
Despite the mandate to cooperate, Pathfinders have myriad motivations and often fall in with similarly minded factions within the organization, or external groups with close ties to the Society. (You're going to meet members of some of those factions during this adventure.) As fresh new recruits, most Pathfinders know only the venture-captains who give them their training, especially Ambrus Valsin, the man in charge of daily operations in the Grand Lodge.
A new batch of Pathfinder agents has completed their training and now stand fresh and wide-eyed before the towering structure of Skyreach awaiting their first assignment for the Pathfinder Society. (That's you. Make your own decision about how "fresh and wide-eyed" you are.)
As you show up, you are shepherded into a small room with a table and some chairs and told to wait until Venture-Captain Ambrus Valsin sends for you.
Here's where you introduce your characters. Stride/walk/stumble into the room, talk amongst yourselves, examine the art on the walls, describe as much or as little of your character's appearance as you want, etc.
Putting a 'Small' column on the 'Tiny and Large' chart (which I believe is what the OP wants) sounds reasonable to me, since it would make reducing a Small character to Tiny easier (you wouldn't have to first bump it up to Medium before referring to the chart).
There is also the side benefit of making Small to Medium and Medium to Small conversions easier. As it is, only one of the four combinations of Small/Medium and Enlarge/Reduce Person (Enlarge Person on a Medium character) has a nice, simple chart.
The PFS FAQ sez:
On checking "whether or not someone succeeded in doing their spellcraft check", the previous GMs should have "sign[ed] off on the spells gained (after witnessing successful skill checks) on affected players' chronicle sheets."
Hope this helps.
Short answer for PFS: all the core races (dwarf, elf, gnome, halfling, half-elf, half-orc, human) are always legal.
Alchemical Cartridges let you load faster, and stack with Rapid Reload.
"Alchemical cartridges make loading a firearm easier, reducing the time to load a firearm by one step (a full-round action becomes a standard action, a standard action becomes a move action, and a move action becomes a free action)"

I assume you are talking about creating a messageboard alias. Click on either of the "My Account" links near the top of any page, look for something that says "messageboard aliases", click "Create new messageboard alias".
Once you've done so, you can post as that alias using the menu underneath the box you type in.
To add the stat block and bio get to their page, either by clicking the alias's name above a post or your's and then the alias in the alias tab. Once at the alias, there should be something under the profile tab to let you create or modify the alias's profile.
Somewhat of an obscure one, but be a ratfolk with a ratfolk cohort.
Swarming: Ratfolk are used to living and fighting communally, and are adept at swarming foes for their own gain and their foes' detriment. Up to two ratfolk can share the same square at the same time. If two ratfolk in the same square attack the same foe, they are considered to be flanking that foe as if they were in two opposite squares.
