It is more important to say “tachanun” after shemoneh essreiy with nothing intervening, than to say “aleinu” together with the tzibbur.
Thus, if one finds oneself right after shemoneh essreiy (of Shacharis or Minchah) and the tzibbur is saying “aleinu”, one should say “tachanun”.

If a woman inadvertently forgets to daven Minchah, it is praiseworthy for her to daven Maariv twice, though she is not obligated to do so.
If she were to daven Maariv once, even if she usually does not daven Maariv, it would be considered “Maariv”, not a “Mincha-replacement.”

Amein, for a berachah of praise, means an affirmation that the praise is true .
For a berachah of praise-and-request, one should think that the praise is true, and that he hopes that the request will be granted.

There are different opinions about skipping the morning birkos hashachar (to be said later, of course), in order to say more pesukei d’zimra.
Of course, one should NOT be coming to Shul at a point in time that this choice and shayloh are relevant.
