    It depends what the words are, I guess.

    If the domain is "spammingguys.com", then yes.

    Generally not a good idea because it's easy to miss spell etc.

    the first word is super recognizable. the second one defines what the site is about. like for example GoogleNews.com. i hope you get the idea

    Yes - this sound really bad. But if you think that this could hurt your SEO - Nope.

    Yes, I would say that this username you are suggesting would look like spam or malware. I would think, if I saw this username on a website, that this username would be used by hackers or other deceptive users to scam you. I would rather suggest using something more natural and no so cryptic.

    It depends on the word. I hope you will have good word in your mind and if that is true then don't worry it will not look spammy.

    Domain name should simple, so that visitor can remember the domain name, that is the reason why DNS system come into existence. It's easy to remember domain name instead IP address
