Can I use a premp between my mic and the fourscite?
Yes, you can use a separate mic preamp between your microphone and the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2x2 USB Audio Interface. The 2i2 does include its own built-in mic preamps, but you can certainly use a separate preamp instead if you prefer.

Would the line outs from an ART DJ Pre II Turntable Phono Preamplifier work with the line inputs on the Scarlet 2i2?
Yes, they will. Keep in mind that the inputs on the 2i2 are mono, so you will need to connect each output (L/R) from the ART to an individual input, using a dual RCA to 1/4" cable: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/828244-REG/Hosa_Technology_HPR_003X2_HPR_003X2_Dual_1_4_TS.html

Is this the right tool if I don't need the input capabilities, but I just need to send the laptop audio to a loudspeaker?
You can use the 1/4" outputs from the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2x2 USB Audio Interface to send audio from the computer out to a powered loudspeaker, but there are other options that are less expensive, since you don't need to connect any microphones, instruments, or devices to the input. For example, you can use the Kopul USB to Audio Direct Box for Digital Audio to PA Systems & Mixers (B&H # KOPSIUSB), which has left and right XLR outputs, or the Polsen USX-116 USB to XLR Interface (B&H # POUSX116), which has a single XLR output.

For a podcast setup with 2 people speaking is there an advantage to the Gen. 3 over the Gen. 2? I'm all for future-proofing but don't know if the $40 price difference is justifiable for the modest use case I'm considering. Thanks for any insights.
Having owned both versions and testing out for podcasts (for use with two mics), I would say no - they're both extremely similar.

I want to get this as a gift. The person uses a portable turntable for scratching. Will they be able to use this interface to get their scratch sounds onto their computer to add to their music productions? Also, what are the voltage specs on this, the mentioned person will be using this in Germany (230voltage). Thanks!!
If the portable TT has LINE level outputs, then it may be connected to this interface.

Can I plug in an Audio-Technica AT897 microphone directly, or do I need an adapter?
You can. The port for an XLR cord is on the back of the unit.

I'm using this interface with a rode podmic, and when set to a decent volume it picks up a lot of background noise or idk if it's called floor noise, but it's kinda like a condenser mic, picks up little taps from 5 or 6 ft away, why would that be? I've tried it with other dynamic mics I own and different xlr cables and it's the same thing.
I am not sure if it will help you, but for me I improved my sound quality by getting the mic really close to me. This allowed me to reduce the gain, and lose or reduce significantly a lot of the background noises (like keyboard clicks). You may also be able to reduce the clicking if it comes from a consistent area by experimenting with the direction of your mic. You should be able to get the pickup pattern from Rode. A Cloudlifter or FetHead might also help you boost your signal without rIsing your noise floor. Good luck!
