Would it sound OK to the native speaker if I threw "much more easier" in an informal conversation for "much easier"?
How about ''much more risky" for "much riskier"?
You mean post #3?
What's wrong with much easier?
Mrs. Adams gave us a really hard test last month. The one we had yesterday was much easier.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I've got another one. Is it much fairer or much more fair? My dictionaries say I can't use more fair though I've come across the use of it by native speakers.
And I would also appreciate your advice. Is it "neither ....nor......" or "neither ....or......" when it's used as a conjunction? In post#7 it's "neither....or.."

It was good enough for Wordsworth, so it's good enough for me, even though he wrote that over 200 years ago.
I would say that 'more fair' is best kept for the meaning of 'more beautiful'.
And I can't say fairer than that.
