Probably not THAT amazing. But hopefully it'll help in some way. ;A; I'll update it when I'm a bit better at until then its probably best if you look at ~MMDFakewings18's Rigging Chart/Guide because I really just suck at rigging percentages.

so i know how to rig hair to a head bone, but how do i rig the bones and physics. whenever i attach hair it gets rid of its existing bones and physics and just stays still! what can i do?

Make a bone for the hair, name it head in the Japanese part. have it rigged to the hair, then save it. Open your model and inport your hair. find the head bone of the model then rename it to head in the Japanese part. Go onto edit and then bone and then "merge bones with same name". it should has a window that's pops up and says "found (number) of bones with same name. merge?" or something like that, then click okay. Viola, your hair should be attached to the head of your models! It's wont have physics though.

I think that only works for hair. If not, then crap I forgot haha but you're welcome

For some reason when I rig a bone, rather than adding to, it overwrites other rigging.
For example: I create a bone to move the entire model (center bone) and another bone to move an individual part (Left bone) but when I go to weight said left bone, those same vertices are no longer weighted to the center bone. (I'm not sure if I explained this very well.)

im wondering how you would you rig an object to a model, for example a flower to a dress or hair?

Sorry it's late but, try rigging it with the same bone that area is rigged and copy the way the hair/dress is rigged, like, you could imagine the flower is just a part of that dress/hair that you forgot to rig, even if it's another object it should follow the bone once it's rigged.

I've tried rigging to the shoulder and arm bones, but I can't seem to rig a type of tank-top sleeve/strap. 
Any ideas on how to fix this?

You go in the rigg panel, then click on "W4" button (the 3st button from left to right, in PmxE, i don't know if PmdE have this button too) then just "paint" the part you want to delete the rig.(If you do it right, the points will be black! ;u; )

I hope this can help! ^3^

Have you already tried setting your pc on Japanese locale? It won't set your pc on Japanese language or anything, I set it myself to make a few Japanese programs working and often it does the trick..  Win10 is garbage with a lot of programs :(
