If you combine (이)랑 with a ㄹ-ending noun, is the 이 omitted? How about with (이)라고 and (이)며?

    If you combine (이)랑 with a ㄹ-ending noun, is the 이 omitted?
    No, the opposite seems to be correct here. For example, 어제 상렬이랑 놀았다. (I hung out with 상렬 yesterday.)

    How about with (이)라고 and (이)며?
    I think you should add a 이 right after a ㄹ ending in both cases.
    For examples
    1. 내 베프(베스트 프렌드) 상렬이라고 해. (This is one of my best friends, 상렬)
    2. 이마트에는 사과며 귤이며 다양한 과일을 팔았다. (Apples, oranges, and a variety of fruits are displayed for sale at E-mart.)
