So, what's the difference in meaning between "di mana" and "di manakah"? I don't know what the "-kah" is doing there yet.

it's only diction.. like in books in elementary education or poem, etc. for conversation, just use "dimana".. ex : dimana kamu tinggal? (formal) / kamu tinggal dimana? (informal).

anw, semangat!

I think it's a Japanese-ism...? To denote any question in Japanese, you add "kah?" at the end. Though it's some distance away I think Japan has some cultural influence in Indonesia...
