Thanks for detailed instructions. A few minor things still not clear to me, inline:

The only fifth exception is Wikidata:

So you need
1. Mediawiki + the same extensions zh:Wikipedia uses
How can I know what extensions is used on zh:Wikipedia? and what's its config?
2. The dumps (including cats and templates)
Looks to me zhwiki-20130315-pages-articles-multistream.xml.bz2 is the one I want, right? 
3. Instacommons  (hadn't heard of this before, sounds cool)
Sounds like this is a config setting, right?  
4. The config setup of zh:Wikipedia, most of which is public (including all the bits you need probably)
5. Some way to talk to Wikidata

All the best, Richard.

If we render the content using MediaWiki softare and the extension,
will the content be same as Chinese Wikipedia?

I know some content also rely on the the site config/settings,
e.g. parsing the interwiki links like [[:File:Mediawiki.png]],
...but you will need to make a similar configuration as wikipedia, as
well as installing most of the extensions used in Chinese wikipedia.

Also for Chinese Variants rendering, it seems some particular
template/category is needed.
e.g. {{noteTA}} is a template defined on
<> [1], not in
<> [2].

[2] only uses templates defined in, it is
completely independent from the pages at
(the only exception is that it can use *files* from, as if you had instantcommons enabled)
