For example, we might say "banyadam mordar sho" when a bad person dies. Is this a common phrase in other regions? I don't think I've heard it outside of Zazi Pashto.
It's pretty common here, i mean among southern Pashtuns.

Hmm Interesting!!
We use 'Bode/بودې' for ponytail.

Also can someone remind me what is 'Kamsey'? And how to spell it in Pashto please?

Pretty sure it's spelled "كوڅى"/"کوڅۍ". I think that's the standard version (at least in Afghan Pashto), but "کونڅۍ" and "کمڅۍ" as you mentioned are dialectal variations.

I know 'sheri' in Pashto. We use it for 'showing off'. Like, deyra shera shera ma keyzha (fem) Which simply means 'don't show off'.
Hahah. "Kaka sher" means male organ. Show off in our dialect is "zan khayoonai" for a guy and "zan khayooni" if it's a woman.

Someone who does a a lot of "khwaari" on their appearance and clothes is called a "dawli".

I use 'zan kheyle'(sin., unisexual)/'zan kheyli'(plu., unisexual)

Dawli is a proper word commonly used for' trendy and stylish' person.

It's not a complement in our parts. Although it's not an insult it's more like banter.

few posts ago, someone posted about a few english sentences and we had to translate it to our dialect! [do you remember now?]
so I think our Farah Khore translated 'children' as 'Kishnyan', while most of the others said 'Mashuman'!
So I would like to say in the Northern Pashto and Central Pashto we have 'Kuchnay'(just like 'Kishney' but different accent)/'Kiche'(just to remind some of you 'Kichi pichi mashuman') and 'Mashum' both!
In our Northern Dialect 'Mashum' is more commonly used, while 'Kiche'/'Kuchnay' is rarely used(but you'll hear it definitely sometimes).

I've heard a lot of southern people use 'kuchnai' too. But we don't use it. It's always 'keshnai' for us. Kasai people use 'kanklai' for child which is a slang word in our region.
