Just to recap, npc artifacts (in the next release) will consist of:
1) Crafts made by moody dwarves
2) Holy relics (pieces of dead priests and so on) made (blessed?) by humans
What else? Will Elves and Goblins make artifacts, or are they limited to stealing from dwarves and humans and receiving them diplomatically?
If I have a modded town dwelling civ that has no religion or moods, will they make artifacts?

There are also artifacts named by heroes, so as long as there are heroes in the civ (BEAST_HUNTER and the like), they'll have artifacts.

Though I'm not 100% sure of how desirable the "lesser" form of artifact will be.

With the coming changes and buffs to kobolds, are we gonna see anything similar for the cavern animal people tribes anytime soon, or is that for later? Right now their presence is almost negligible.

With the inclusion of different planes of existance, what kind of differences could planes have between worlds? For example, could we have a plane made entirely of gold filled with a single type of creature?

Also, how will these planes interact with the normal world?

It's most probably for later. Animal people is a different set of issues than kobolds. The kobolds is a "civilized" major race with "settlements" that are being overhauled now, while animal peoples are split into "tribes" of underground animal peoples and "tribes" of above ground animal peoples, neither of which have any settlements or equipment beyond what's carried. At a guess, animal peoples would fit into the giant pile of law and custom thingies.

That kind of plane sound quite possible. The first pass of inter planar contact will have one way portals that allow creatures from the other plane to get into the mundane world. The intention is to allow for player interaction to open/close (some) portals.
Later development will allow two way portals, but that's more than two major releases away (upcoming: artifacts, and thereafter myth&magic 1).

1. Will our adventurers eventually have family relations like parents?
2. Will our demigod adventurers have godly parents who can grant them divine powers?

When someone attacks your fort over an artifact that you did not agree to hand over. Is that a deceleration of war or is it just a battle? Can it lead to wars?

1) Yes. One day. One day you may be able to pick from any historical character. You may also get to play as a decendent of a previous adventure.

Given that Kobolds lay eggs, what should happen if an adventurer steals a fertilized egg from some kobold caves? Would the egg hatch into a newborn kobold?

Will kobolds have any positions and entity tokens defined as a result of these changes to caves, or will some hardcoded behavior be involved there?

In principle, if the eggs were kept at a proper temperature, you'd be able to hatch them. However, it's unlikely incubators are going to be included in DF as I think it's a fairly recent invention. It's more probable that leaving the eggs in the nest box and wait for them to hatch will work (it seems fortress egg layers can be butchered a fair while before the eggs hatch without preventing the eggs from hatching). Regardless, newborn kobolds would be hostile to the player.
