Just like normal, you contact your motor vehicles department to release liability of the vehicle. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to transfer the title to their name.

If you are the owner of a car can it be registered to someone else in one state but insured by you in another state or can the registrant insure it in a different state?

The owner of the car has to register the vehicle. The person on the registration must insure the vehicle, or be listed to drive that vehicle on a family policy. That example sounds close to insurance fraud so please correct the situation. Sell the car to the other person and they have to insure it. Actually it is 100% legal for a person to insure a vehicle registered in someone elses name so long as nothing illegal is going can be the parents etc.....

It may vary from state to state, but in general the answer is no, you generally cannot be cited for failure to maintain insurance on a vehicle if that vehicle is non-operative (i.e., it's parked and not going anywhere). You may have to continue to register it as a non-operative vehicle, however. And if the vehicle is going to move under it's own power again, it will need to be insured.

A salvage vehicle is one that has received a certain percentage of the vehicle's worth in damage (determined by the state the vehicle is registered in).

Can you take an encumbered car into another state to register it?

You can only legally register a vehicle in the state in which you reside. If, for instance, you move to another state, as long as the lienholder knows where the vehicle is going to be located there is no problem. HOWEVER - if you intend to take the vehicle to another state in order to conceal its location from the lienholder then you are committing an unlawful act and attempting to deprive the lienholder of their rightful property. You can be charged with auto theft ESPECIALLY if you cross a state line in order to do it.

This one will cover all 50 states regarding a gun in a commercial vehicle is not allowed. ====== False - there is NOTHING in the FMCSR addressing firearms in a commercial vehicle. The laws of transporting firearms in a CMV are going to be the same as any other vehicle, and these laws will vary from state-to-state. If you're in MD, it's not a very gun-friendly state, and they do not recognise out-of-state concealed carry permits, so you won't be permitted to carry it concealed in the cab.
