1. What formula correctly describes the immeasurable force between
moving charges?

When only a few charges are involved, simply the Coulomb equation,
for more complex situations, the Gauss law is the tool.

If the charges are moving then you need to include magnetic effects.
So you need Coloumb + Biot Savart + Lorentz. It ain't a trivial
problem!

Not necessarily. If an external magnetic is not applied, it is perfectly
possible to have only electric interaction to deal with even if the
charges are moving. But you are right, if a magnetic field is involved.

Not sure what you mean by "immeasurable".

Me neither. The force is measurable in most circumstances.

2. How does one reconcile the contradiction between the
Biot-Savart/Lorentz force and Newton's third law?

What contradiction are you referring to ?

3. Why did Maxwell praise Ampere's work but ignore his force law?

He did not ignore it. He generalized it to become the 4th equation, from
which the speed of light can be calculated.

if its not measurable how could anything describe it?

describe the contradiction mathematecally using all appropriate formulas and
it will be reconciled.

oversight? or maybe he didn't like it? have you tried asking him?

4. What must be added to Wilhelm Weber's incomplete theory of 1848 so
that it can predict electromagnetic radiation?

maybe it was incomplete because he didn't try to describe electromagnetic
radiation. but i bet if you add maxwell's equations it will predict em
radiation.
