It can vary a bit, but I think 3-4 weeks is a good estimate.

What exactly does rule 5 of the episode rules mean?

It means that Players with 10+ completed games, without replacing out, may join as if the Episode is a regular game.

Okay, what would be the difference between joining as if it were an episode, and joining as if it were a regular game?

"All players with 3+ completed games, without replacing out, may join an Episode. However, they may join if they are in another game already. But they may not join any others once in the Episode. Check with an FM Mod if you're unsure if you qualify."

I've really only been active on the forum for a day, but this is an easy question to answer.

Since you specifically said that this is a 1v1, the situation we're dealing with is a 2-player game, and it is always impossible to lynch anyone in a 2-player game regardless of alignment because the only way for a majority to be reached would be for that person to lynch him/herself, which is impossible as far as I know.
Favorite role: Consigliere (Ever played a game with two Consigs? It tips the balance severely in favor of the Mafia, but that's what makes it so fun when you're one of them!)
After that, it's Godfather and Mafioso, I guess. I prefer to play as Mafia in general because then I have allies, and the killing roles are the most straightforward.

The game would end in a 1v1 in FM unless one of the players is a Veteran. It's not like some situations in TOS where scum has to kill the last town member in order to win.

I don't think the town has to necessarily kill roles like Jester and stuff.

The faction wins if their wincondition is reached.

Popped in to see if I was deleted. I was not.

Unless a wincon details otherwise, a moderator has a specific call regarding the scenario, or a situation arises like the last two players remaining are a vigilante and a witch, town wins when NKs and the Mafia are eliminated. They do not have to lynch a jester in a 1v1; the Jester would lose, and the Town would win.

If you replace into a game and have played one other FM game can you still play a round of NFM?

The amount of games played is calculated on finished games, so unless those games are finished, you are still eligible for NFM
