Were people's guesses regarding these words ever confirmed or denied?

If it's not "the long wyrm (dragon)" or "the long worm", is it "the long snake"?

This is pretty tough, at least in my opinion, since it's a longer sentence… is it "I thought about the air and X the clouds X out of dogs and X"? "X" represents a word I don't have a guess for.

Isn't Faucholën just Falochland, his concountry?

No, it doesn't compound that way.

(My phone doesn't have a o-macron, so I'll use a o-double accent for the same vowel, also ticked d instead of edh and e-dot for long mid front)

Is it ődőđra-mė

Does ōd derive from ūt?

Do both ō's have the same source?

Is "ōd-" derived from a preposition or an element that was already used as a prefix in Proto-Germanic?

Yep, same sound change going on.

I teased out that the first morpheme is from *andi-. Like the Ingaevonic nasal spiral law, the a is lengthened and the n is lost. Then a probably became more close.

Following that, I identify *antheros with the second morpheme in the dative. That gives us roughly "against second". I think this is a preposition of some sort.

No, not a preposition. That meaning is very rough too; you'll need to tweak that and think more metaphorically.
