comment Why is sewage backing up from this outdoor pipe?
I don't think that this pipe is a vent or an old downspout connection. The pipe is most likely a cleanout installed on the building sewer as it leaves the building, which depending on your local code will most likely be a requirement. Usually you would have a proper cleanout fitting installed but here there have used a non-glued cap. Have the line scoped and cleaned/repaired but do not disable the use of this pipe to act as the cleanout.

comment How can I add an ice maker water line?
The copper tube in question is 3/8". The only tools that you'll need is a copper tube cutter and two crescent wrenches. This is a simple task, but the best advise is to take it slow and don't over tighten anything. When using the tube cutters, don't tighten them too quickly as you can deform the tube. When tightening the compression nuts, again, don't over tighten them as you can always tighten them more if they drip a little.

The fittings in the original post are compression type and have a running thread. The coupling shown here has National Pipe Threads and are not compatible.

comment What alternatives do I have to cap/plug the kitchen spray nozzle
Tim, have you tired getting the model number by using Moen's website? You answer a series of questions and they try to determine the model that you have. You might be able to get a shop drawing or a parts list. Here's the site: moen.com/replacement-parts

comment What could be causing water to drip from the relief valve of my new gas water heater?
If it's steadily dripping, it could simply be that there is some debris stuck on the seal of the TPR valve preventing it from sealing shut. Have you tried fully opening the TPR valve and letting it flow for a few seconds? I would do this a few times and see if it seals after that.
