I put down camanachd, as that's what I know it as in Gaelic. It was marked right but it made me wonder - why does Duolingo call it iomain?

Both words are used. I would also use 'camanachd' naturally, but it's a dialectal thing.

What is the deal with Neil, Niall, Neill etc? Are they or are they not interchangeable and if not, which is which??

Niall /NʲiaL/ fir. gin. ⁊ iol. Néill Neil(l), Niall

why "a Nèill"? all the Neils I know are younger and more stupid than me.
