    So many questions:

    1: Does a Shifter's Bound Summoned Ally Advance as if an Allied NPC? Does this affect the number of PPE needed to maintain the binding?
    1A: If so, can an Advanced Ally be re-summoned with the Advances intact?
    2: Does Strong-willed apply to Corruption tests?
    3: If a bound demon, dyvallian or other corrupting entity is incapacitated (and thus sent back to their plane of origin) or banished, does summoning that specific entity back force another Corruption check?

    Technically no, summoned creatures dont normally advance. Plus, that would require an extremely long term use of the Bind the Summoned ability!

    That said, if it makes for a cool story its up to the GM to do what is right for their campaign—but they would be on the hook for how that plays out. If the PPE needed to maintain the binding increased, the creature would slip out of the Shifter's control and probably run amok and/or try to kill the Shifter for abusing the terms of service *conjures a materialized infernal contract, not unlike the Apple terms of service*

    Yes. While not exactly the same as most Tests (usually attacker's Skill vs defender's linked Trait, not Trait vs Trait), the being is Testing the Shifter.

    Yes, absolutely. Though I would add that incapacitating an entity (other than an Intelligence or Old One) will often kill it or severely wound it, and not banish it. For instance, elementals killed on our plane are dead, thus Elemental Fusionists and kind-hearted casters will seek to send the entity back to its home dimension rather than see it slain in their service (often accomplished with the banish power for long-term summons, or just ending the effects of the summon ally power).

    Also, some banishments may last a certain amount of time (ie a month, century, millenia, etc) before the being can return to the plane from which they are banished—it is up to the GM (consulting with players of course) to decide the ins and outs of such a story in their game.
