comment How to make validation in a remote event receiver - ItemAdding
I suspect your event receiver is not properly hooked up. Does the list exist on the host web, or in the app web? Are you able to step through the code with the debugger?

comment Why does every document in doc center go to the drop off library
I'm not sure. I would suggest using a test environment and building out your solution, and testing, one small step at a time to see where the problem lays. You have a misconfiguration somewhere, you're going to have to systematically root it out.

That is very strange, I have never seen that. How are you pushing the files to the document center? Is it progammatic, using a send-to connection or manually?

Do you have multiple web front ends? Could be a misconfiguration on one of them.

comment Get a list of all sites user has edit rights in SharePoint 2013
Nope, it won't work in JSOM if the url is outside the current site collection. Give it a shot and wee what I mean. Do a web search for cross-domain calls in jQuery for REST. It's slightly more complex, but once you know it, you know it.

comment Why does every document in doc center go to the drop off library
To clarify, the drop off library should only have documents that don't match any rule. If a document matches multiple rules it will be routed according to the first match it encounters. In fact, doc centers often have a "catch-all" rule as the last rule.

comment Why does every document in doc center go to the drop off library
Are you saying you have two copies of the document? One in the destination library and one in the drop off library? How are you putting the documents in the record center? Are you uploading them there directly or using a send-to connection?

Looping in JSOM is messy and error prone as you know. But your bigger problem is you can not reach outside your site collection using JSOM, so you will not be able to query other site collections as you propose. You'll have to use REST or the SOAP web services which might be marginally less messy because you can use promises.

You will not be able to use CSOM or REST unless you store a list of site collections somewhere (probably in a list), but that means you have to keep that up to date. You will not be able to use JSOM at all, as that runs on a page and cannot break out of its site collection. Actually, if you are willing to store a list of site collections that should greatly simplify your task.

Also, do you need this in real time or would a periodic job do the trick? The reason I'm asking this is because that code is going to take some time to run.

Do you mean the current user, or any user? Also, where are you displaying these sites? On a page? Storing them to a file or a list?

No one should ever need that many test users. If anyone has that many users on a dev tenant they are obviously not using it for testing.

comment Can I use a on premise sql database as the back end for a SharePoint 2013 App?
The only thing that should be different is the connection string. Everything else should be exactly the same. What is the information you have that is telling you otherwise? What version of Visual Studio are you using, and what project template are you using?
