I'll fly from San Francisco to Madrid, Spain but have a stop on DFW arriving at 03:23PM my next flight is 04:40PM directly to Spain; Do I need to check out my luggage and check-in again and go through security or once I checked the luggage in SF, I do not have it again? Is there enough time?

All you have to do in DFW on your way to Madrid is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train, nothing with your bags and no security. You have enough time.
I and my son will arrive DFW from NRT in AA176 flight at 8:00 at terminal D then will departure for PHX at 10:45 at terminal C with AA425 flight. Do we have enough time for all procedures and how should we do the quickest way (as we visit US for the 1st time). Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time. Just follow instructions and move as quickly as you can.
My non-English speaker aunt will be flying from HKG - DFW on 1/30/2018 on AA 0126 arriving 4:10pm at terminal D, and then taking AA1261 to IAD leaving 6:25pm at terminal C. Will she have enough time to retrieve checked luggage & then rechecked in, take skylink, pass through security and get on the connecting flight? For AA, does she need to carry the reclaimed checked luggage from terminal D all the way to terminal C for recheck in? I never fly at/thru DFW, and can someone please tell me the procedure/steps for getting through, so that I can tell her in advance because she does not speak English. I am nervous for her in case she gets lost or misses the flight. Thanks a lot !!
She will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Skylink to her departure gate. Re-check is right after she clears customs in Terminal D.
I land at DFW from New Orleans on an AA flight. Have 52 min to get to Qatar air check in/connection. Is this possible? What would be the fastest route
Is it two separate reservations or all one reservation? If it's all one reservation then you don't have to check in again with Qatar Airways and can go directly to your departure gate on the Skylink Train.
I'm planning on traveling from GSP to CHC with a transfer at DFW. There is a 2 hour stop over. I figure 30 minutes to get off the plane. Will 90 minutes be enough time to go from a terminal to international terminal?
It doesn't take 30 minutes to get off a plane. If both flights are on the same reservation that's plenty of time as all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
I will arrive at DFW, coming from London at terminal D at 03:45PM. My connecting flight to Mobile Alabama will leave at 5:20PM from terminal B. Is this feasable? Do I need to travel light, with only cabin luggage?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you can travel without checked bags that will speed things up.
