The archetypes of a class are all one class You do not have levels in scout-rogue and levels in skulking-slayer-rogue, you just have levels in rogue. That rogue class may be modified by the scout archetype and the skulking slayer archetype, if they are compatible (don’t both modify or remove the same core rogue class feature), but it is still one class. So ...

Picking one archetype grants that one archetype's features; picking more than one compatible archetype grants all archetypes' features Archetypes are picked when a character first takes a level in the class and persist throughout the character's career, forever altering that class for that character (barring, for example, retraining).

It does give you evasion, so if you're encountering a lot of other mages perhaps that is something. ...

Maybe the wizard can copy the spell into her spellbook... The 5e rules for multiclassing (PHB p. 164) state that your spells known and prepared are based on your class level for each class, but your spell slots are based on your combined levels, which may result in you having spell slots of higher level than any of the spells you know. They provide an ...

Yes, prestige classes can be progressed by other prestige classes Simply said, nothing says you can’t. No prestige class (to my knowledge) specifies base class for this kind of thing. But the chosen prestige class has to have the feature that the second advances Eldritch knight allows you to advance spellcasting. Anima mage does not grant spellcasting. It ...

Short answer, "no"; medium answer, "there's a typo in the class description". Long answer: No... Eldrich Knight's spell progression (along with every spell-level-progressing prestige class I can think of) says: From 2nd level on, when a new eldritch knight level is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in ...
