Is it a backcourt violation if the inbounds pass in the offensive zone is touched by the same offensive player who BeFORE has possession crosses midcourt to gain possession in the backcourt?

The question is sort of confusing, I will answer the best way I can: you can inbound the ball and pass it to someone backcourt, even though you had already crossed midcourt. So for example: if the defense fouls you (not a shooting foul), your team keeps possession, when you inbound the ball, you can pass it to a player that is backcourt and it won't be a violation. Hope this helped.

Yes, it is a violation. If you leave the ground from the frontcourt and catch the ball in the air, you establish possession in the frontcourt. Then when you land in the backcourt, it is over-and-back. If you catch the ball straddling the line, however, this is OK.

If you are dribbling the basketball in your side of the court what can cause a back court violation?

I.) The failure to bring the ball from the backcourt into the frontcourt in the allotted 10 seconds. II.) After offense brought the ball to frontcourt, if any player on offense causes the ball to be in their team's possession on the backcourt that is a violation. (once you cross the half court you can't touch that half court line or cross it). If the defense deflects the ball into the backcourt and the offense recovers the ball, it is not a backcourt violation. I could not find any document on this and basically describing it on my experience.
