comment Creating Custom Login page for both windows and Forms based authentication
I usually use the link: <a href="/_windows/default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f_layouts%2f15%2fAuthenticate.aspx%3fSo‌​urce%3d%252F&Source=%2F">Windows Login</a> This will always redirect the user to the root of the site after login though. You'll need to add some backend logic (or potentially js) if you want to adjust to the exact page they were attempting to access.

comment Can I have FBA using .NET SQL Membership provider & AD using 2 custom log in pages?
Yes - if you want to login with Windows credentials using FBA, you'd use the LDAPMembershipProvider that you mentioned in your question as your membership provider. Do you want to use that AS WELL AS SQL Authentication? Because you could just put your sql users into AD and have it authenticate in a single place. If you want to have the two membership providers, you 'd have to setup two seperate zones. Alternatively you can build a custom membership provider, that joins the LDAPMembership provider and the SQLMembershipProvider. I'd recommend you just stick with the one provider though.

comment Migrating FBA from SP2010 to 2013
Just a comment on using the password format of 'Encrypted' - I generally recommend people use a password format of 'hashed'. The reason being that: encrypted passwords can be decrypted, while hashed passwords cannot (making them more secure). Also, for encrypted passwords, the same key is needed everywhere they are used, making it more troublesome to setup.

comment Failed to Initialize the encryption algorithm
Why not just use Hashed? It's more secure than Encrypted. The only reason I can think of to use encrypted is if you have to retrieve the user's actual password - which IMHO is a bad idea.
