not really, the correct inputs are important. Also, most monitors dont have an IR remote
Thanks for the update as I think at this time most people will be using a Pi3 instead of a Pi2
You would need to add a GPS receiver to the Pi and create some way scripting the GPS coordinate changes to the html for the map.
This has been clarified in step 4 and in replies to those members comments. This step (#4) ended up not being necessary anyway so you can just use a standard power cord and not have to solder any high voltage wiring, just skip step #4. This should be possible with most monitors, TVs, touch screen monitors. If a different monitor is used obviously the steps dealing with where to tap into power like step #7 and the steps dealing with the IR sensor (#5) would be completely different.

depends what you want on your webpage. For example, if you wanted the Google Calendar, you would need to get the embed html code from your Google Calendar page and paste it into your infocenter webpage. See this link: https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/41207?hl=en
no, it is controlled by the IR schedule, see step 6 & 22
Pi 2b or 3 shouldn't matter. You won't need the WiFi adapter with a 3
I added the contents of the LEDblink script to the bottom of step 6
Which links specifically? I added the contents of the LEDblink script to the bottom of step 23.
I added the contentes script to the bottom of step 23
Just about any monitor or flatscreen TV should work, just make sure the touchscreen is compatible with the Pi. If you use another model monitor/TV you will also need to locate a constant power source, it will be different then step 7.
Google maps doesn't let you directly embed the traffic layer. Here is the workaround I used: create a /var/www/html/traffic.html file as shown here change the lattitude and longitude coordinates in the traffic.html file to your coordinates. embed the traffic.html file in your index.html file like this: <iframe src="http://localhost/traffic.html" height="245px" width="400px" frameborder="0" style="border:0"></iframe>
all of the calendars displayed have been shared with the google account I used in this infocenter. If you already have the additional calendars set up to display in the account you use for the infocenter then you just need to used the embed this calendar feature built in to Google Calendar.

Any TV that has an IR remote control will have a constant power supply, but different manufacturers may use different voltages. You could use a voltage regulator to get the 5v needed.
This is not a touch screen because I didn't have any extra old touch screen monitors to sacrifice, but you could upgrade it to be one. Just make sure the touchscreen LCD is compatible with the Pi. The idea was to run this headless since the entire infocenter can be controlled via SSH, but I did end up getting a wireless keyboard/mouse for the rare instances that I may need one.
IR is strictly for the remote control, either from the original remote or via LIRC commands from the Pi. Not a touchscreen although it would be a nice upgrade.
It might be possible but not practical as far as I know. You would need to be able to run a web server like Apache for starters
the HTML file is in step 23
I'm in the US but this cable was continuity tested end to end and I'm certain that in this case the blue wire is the ground pin on the plug. But yes, I would highly recommend that anyone who decides to remove the power inlet on their board and hardwire it with a sacrificial power cord thoroughly continuity test their cable and be sure you know which wire is which. Also, that step ended up not being necessary, the original power inlet had plenty of space for a cord behind it for a cord to be inserted, so step 4 as I noted in the instructions is optional
