I was given to understand that Brahmayagnam is to be performed after Sratham. Is it so? If the answer is yes why Vadyars are not conducting this ? I am perplexed.

Sri:
Brahmayajgnam is not a part of shradham
it is like sandhya vandhanam, one (brahmin) should do it on his own.
Smarthas are doing it as part of Tarpanam so, they are doing this also at the end of shradham.
But, vaishnavites are not doing Brahmayajgnam as part of Tarpanam but some anushtadas are doing it as duty,
(daily anushtanam).

I suspect, later, sandhya vandhanam also becomes like brahmayajgnam?!!

I am not getting clear on whether soma pitruman tharpanam should be done by everyone or just those without father. Some say it should be done by everyone as it is for Sun and not for own ancestors; some say it should not be done as it will include living father in that list. Can someone please explain this, as of now I don't do this part.

Sri:
Agni is also having the name "Kavya vAhanan" because HE is delivering the kavyam to pitrus in pitru logas.

This mantram clearly says,
soma pitrumaan --- pitrus who are all in the delivery list of kavya vaahanan may attain this tarpanam (treat given in the way of water with sesame).
So, it will not for the live pitru, (if a mantram mention the live pitru in will not do any evil for them?!, also, when the name (sabdam) 'pitru' is added it will never indicate the live one.
