What do you mean to far? Considering a WC flush tank is considered 4 FU and on an 11/2" line you can run 4 FU 100 FEET I really do not see any problem If you have to, You can always use a 2" diameter pipe then connect the toilet and have an unlimited run in ft..

What makes a basement toilet gurgle when taking a shower upstairs?

It probably has no vent. The vent is used to allow air pressure to get around the material that is going down the drain and prevents the water in a p-trap or toilet from being sucked out as the water goes down the drain past it. Sometimes the vent is there but blocked. Sometimes no vent was installed. It can be a serious problem, especially if sewer gas leaks into the home when the toilet makes that noise.

When Iflush the toilet the kitchen drain gurgles?

You have a blockage in your main sewerline. You have a problem with your venting system. This is why some codes now require a vent within 6" of the toilet.

Can the roof venting of a toilet be upstream of the toilet flange?

Most of the time they are. Depends on how far of course. Usually, the toilet is by the main stack so it only has to go the 12 to 16 inches to get to the drain. The main stack goes through the roof for the vent for the whole house or the bath and laundry. As long as the toilet is getting venting from somewhere, it should still flush.

Why would the toilet on the main floor make a bubbling noise when you flush the upstairs toilet?

The two toilets are probably one the same drain line. Are they directly one below the other? If they are, the vent for the bottom toilet is the drain for the upstairs toilet. This is called a wet vent which is not usually done anymore. If this is the case, there is nothing you can do on your own. If your toilets are not one above the other, you still have some sort of venting problem. Either way, you should call a plumber.

When an upstairs toilet or shower is drained the basement toilet gurgles and drains when you flush the basement toilet at any time it's a VERY lazy flush unless you lightly-tip it off the wax?

Your vent pipe for that part of the plumbing is either blocked or non-existent. Having to tip the toilet off center slightly is letting air enter into the system, something that should be happening under normal conditions if the vent pipe were working properly. That vent pipe needs to be snaked out and cleaned.

What would cause gurgling bubbling in bathtub drain when toilet is flushed?

It could be insufficient venting. The water going the drain from the toilet sucks air behind it. There should be a vent going up through the roof which lets air into the drain stack pipe. If it can't get enough air, it can suck air through another drain trap. It could be a design problem, or the vent could be clogged with ice or debris.
