comment What are necessary and sufficient conditions for the product of spheres to be paralellizable?
This is false for $S^{2n} \times S^{2n}$ with $n>0$, because the Euler class of the tangent bundle is nonzero.

comment Orientable Surface Covers Non-Orientable Surface
I don't know what you're allowed to use but a nice fact about the Euler characteristic is that if $E \rightarrow B$ is an $n$-sheeted covering, then the Euler characteristic of $E$ is $n$ times the Euler characteristic of $B$. If $E$ is orientable, the Euler characteristic also equals $2-2g$, if it's non-orientable the Euler characteristic is $2-g$ where $g$ is the genus. So... consider the double cover. :)

comment Cohomology of the pullback of a fiber bundle over the torus (generalised Eilenberg-Moore spectral sequence?)
There is an Eilenberg-Moore spectral sequence for general connected base spaces; the trouble is that it doesn't always converge to thing you want unless the action of $\pi_1$ satisfies some nilpotent conditions. I can only find a reference for the case of a fibration, but the case of a homotopy pullback shouldn't be too different: www3.nd.edu/~wgd/Dvi/StrongConvergenceEilenbergMoore.pdf
