Multiple times in this series, objects have been made from channeling alone.  (Mostly swords and balls of light.)

Can such objects become permanent?  If so, how?  If not, why?

I'm pretty sure that at the start of the Great Hunt when Siuan is teaching Nyn how to channel Nyn asks about creating a sword with the power and Siuan 'makes' a sword but then asks why she wouldn't just use air to hold the opponent instead.

Objects created with the power last as long as the weave, weaves can be tied off, but eventually decay or need renewing, I guess objects made with them last that long.

I think it has to do with how tight you can make a knot. So it depends on the creator.

What purpose/purposes brought Thom to Two Rivers?

 

When and where and through what means did he find out about Two Rivers? and what was he told?

 

Thom's & Moiraine's arrivals at Four Kings, Whitebridge, Baerlon; what were the time differences at each location (on the way to Two Rivers)?  and who arrived first at each location?

Two Rivers tabac is famous throughout the Westlands. Even the Aiel talk about it.

Aes Sedia & Warders generally use aliases when introducing themselves to strangers.  Nobles and Two Rivers seem to be the main exceptions.  Nobles I think I understand.  But why Two Rivers?

Two rivers was considered the back end of the world but as Az said folks did know about it for its Tabac.  Though quite likely the average person couldn't fins it on a map.  I don't remember why Thom said he was in the Two Rivers for but my guess is the pattern made sure he was there.  Also as he was a wanted man by the Queen and hated Aes Sedai it could be he was just looking for an out of the way place to hang out for a bit.

Thinking back to EOTW, didn't the Village Council of Emonds Field specifically order in a Gleeman for the festival?

 

Yeah:

 

“What sort of place is this?” the gleeman demanded in a deep voice that sounded in some way larger than that of an ordinary man. Even in the open air it seemed to fill a great room and resonate from the walls. “The yokels in that village on the hill tell me I can get here before dark, neglecting to say that that was only if I left well before noon. When I finally do arrive, chilled to the bone and ready for a warm bed, your innkeeper grumbles about the hour as if I were a wandering swineherd and your Village Council hadn’t begged me to display my art at this festival of yours. And he never even told me he was the Mayor.” He slowed for a breath, taking them all in with a glare, but he was off again on the instant. “When I came downstairs to smoke my pipe before the fire and have a mug of ale, every man in the common room stares at me as if I were his least favorite brother-in-law seeking to borrow money. One old grandfather starts ranting at me about the kind of stories I should or should not tell, then a girl-child shouts at me to get out, and threatens me with a great club when I don’t move quickly enough for her. Who ever heard of treating a gleeman so?”

He's familiar with Baerlon (there's another quote about it being one of the last places in the world for news to arrive), presumably he was wandering around the villages in that area, the village council sent someone to find a performer and he's the one they came across.
