That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I am traveling from Toronto to Austin with an hour long layover in Dallas. Will this be enough for me to complete the immigration procedures? Also, will I have to collect my own bags and check them in again, or will they meet me at Austin directly?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time.

If the layover is overnight you will have to claim your bags in DFW. If it is all during the day you won't.

I will be flying in to DFW from Australia. I was wondering how long of a lay over I need to get through customs and be able to catch a flight out to St. Louis.
If both flights are on the same reservation 2 hours is sufficient if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying to from Des Moines to Cancun with a layover in DFW. Is 1 hour enough time for this layover? Do we need to go through customs since we are flying internationally?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You have enough time if the flight from Des Moines is on-time.
Thank you!!
