I would say Yes, there is a chance to WGC or GAQ. After all, I've
pulled out of run after beating all the challenges (unable to beat
the requirement). If I can do it, my opponent can use the same

As to why you WOULDN'T wait until the very end: Perhaps you want to
GAQ and bounty hunter the runner that lets him sleaze the challenges
and not face them?

There are "fast effects" in SR, they just work diffently with regards
to timing (nothing pre-empts anything else unless the card
specifically says so). I'd say yes, you could use the Spirit.

Yes (the first answer). There is no "entering" a challenge. Once
you decide to face it, you have a chance to meet the sleaze
requirements. At this point, you can designate spirits and drones to
fight when you don't meet them. [I'm assuming that when the sleaze
requirements are offered, you know what the challege is. Otherwise,
the game offers advantages to those that memorize the
sleaze<->challege orders]
