Okay, so on creating that Nim-like OC, I bet that using the same color scheme as her and that other background pony is already considered a pure clone of her, even if I change up the mane and eye design a bit. That sucks.

I already told you you could go ahead with that if you wanted.  If you don't think you can avoid making a rip-off design with that color scheme, then please don't, but there's so much aside from the colors you could do to make a character different.  Hairstyle, attitude, cutie mark, species, and probably tons more.  It's up to you.

Well, I’ll take that in mind, but, is using all the other hairstyles you used for Nim means cloning as well?

I mean, if it's a coincidence that you chose a hairstyle she's had before, that's one thing, but actively looking at something she's done and just copying it to your own character feels like cloning, yes!
