Lots of weird stuff. I'm not sure what I want to report here, but I guess it could help?
Also I cannot extend the barlines to the bottom of the page, I mean connect all the staves together.

Here, it's not exactly the same but it kind of gets out of boundaries, not that much as the one above because the part's name is not shown. Check that, you cannot connect all staves together by dragging down the bar-lines. The time signatures are also out of place. Lastly, do you know a more effective way to have many piano staves in one part BUT NOT linked? I cannot find a fast way to get what I want.

Exactly as I said, that's more notes than can physically fit on the page (given your current settings in Format / Style / Measure). If you need to do this, you will need bigger paper or smaller notes, your choice - no getting around the laws of physics on that. Or, you could simply split the measure to continue it onto the next system.

Not sure what you mean about linekd piano staves - piano staves would never normally be linked to anything. You have a single piano with 10 staves which makes no musical sense at all, but none of them are linked.

Are you sure they are not linked? I tried setting a dynamic thatI wanted to apply only in ONE staff, but the others also played in the same volume as THAT one staff, I wanted to apply the dynamic to. Also 100000+ makes sense for a single piano. It's just that there was never a need to. I can split a bar in 2 systems? How? .O.

I'm sure they are not linked. If they were, adding a note to one staff would make it appear in the other. Dynamics always affect the entire instrument default, as is standard for music notation (eg, a dynamic between the two staves of a piano part affects both staves). If you have a ten-handed pianist you want to play this part, and you want him to play each staff at a different dynamic, then simply set the dynamic range to "Staff" in the Inspector, rather than the default "Part". But, probably makes more sense to actually consider how many pianists will be playing this and organize the score with multiple instruments of 1-2 staves each.

I also don't understand why are dynamics applied to all staves of a part by default and not applied to 1 staff? I think the latter is the most usual. I mean in classical scores it was always the case because of you had an orchestra playing, and had two or three staves were the dynamic changed in the same moment, same dynamic, then you would just have to add 1 for each staff.

?
Dynamics by default apply to the instrument. If that instrument happens to have more than one staff, it applies to all these staves, by default. There are not many instruments that do have multiple staves (Piano, Organ, marimba?), and for those this default makes perfect sense, as different dynamics for these staves are the exception rather then the norm.
If you though 'misuse' this to combine e.g. Flute 1 and Flute 2 into one 'instrument' with 2 staves, you'd have to live with the consequences of that 'misuse'

Not able connecting staves is related to the new vertical staves justification. There are two workarounds
1) Disable the feature temporarily. You can find this in the Style form at the Page page (second page). Uncheck the option Enable vertical justification of staves. Now dragging the staves works as expected. Later on this feature can be enabled again.
2) Select a barline you want to stretch and in the inspector, select the option Span to next staff and click on Set as staff default.
In the meantime I will have a look why it not working as expected.

Maybe... tho... I do think it's possible to fit this one, or maybe I'm wrong? Anyway, in this case I believe it should be great if it continued the measure in the next page (yes this isn't classical notation).

+1. In cases like this or non-mensural notation, when notes go out of the page horizontally, I'd love to see automatic and dynamic measure breaks, the same way a word processor splits a word when it's too long to fit in the page. This could be complemented with a warning to allow the user to decide whether they want the measure to break or prefer to change the page/staff size.
