Hi James. Unfortunately one lapel microphone can be used per Sony Hybrid Digital Lavalier Wireless Mic System. You can only hear one transmitter on each receiver.
The Sennheiser SKP 100 G3-B Plug-On Transmitter does not supply 48V Phantom power. You would need to either use a Shotgun mic with a battery like the Rode NTG-2 or Rode NTG-4+ or get a plug pack transmitter which does and is compatible with your Sennheiser Evolution 100 system like the SKP 300 G3-B (make sure that you choose the correct frequency range) $645 inc GST. If you haven’t bought a system yet consider the Sony UWPD16 http://www.videocraft.com.au/sony-hybrid-digital-wireless-mic-kit-638-693mhz
Yes, the Rode NTG4+ can get phantom power from being connected to a camera or pre-amp. The phantom power does not charge the included internal lithium ion battery. The Battery can be charged in two hours, and last for up to 150 hours, via the included MicroUSB cable, which can be connected to any USB port.
The Zoom H5 is a 4 track recorder, which means you can record up to 4 simultaneous audio sources simultaneously, including the Optional Shotgun Mic and XLR/TRS Inputs.
The input sensitivity on the Sennheiser EW100ENGG3B transmitter can be set to line level. The output level of the receiver is mic level, so you will need a mic pre amp at the speaker end. They are not designed for this purpose and I can’t comment on how they would perform.
The XF100 Camera has Balanced XLR inputs for professional mics. The DM100 mic is designed for consumer cameras. I would suggest a Sony ECMVG1
Often when using a Rode VideoMic Me mic to record to the phone, there is interference from the phone signal itself. When recording audio, try setting the phone to aeroplane mode, as this often solves this issue.
Yes, this issue is common to most Rode mics when used in a Sony mic holder. It can be fixed with the purchase of a Sony Microphone Spacer, which can be found here: http://www.videocraft.com.au/catalogsearch/result/?q=317988201
