1. Just want to clarify, when Hail Mary is played, a player put a Runner on any empty space on the board. So if I am reading this text correctly, a player during his last turn can just drop a Runner or Ringer on the major scoring mound to gain 5 points. If this happen, then the opponent will have no opportunity to react. Is this a legitimate play?

2. If a Runner immediately bring the ball to the major scoring mound on the opposite side of the field, does its team immediately gain 5 points?

Yes, it is a legitimate play. The opposing team can counter this possibility by moving one of their own figures onto their own major scoring mound earlier in the game.

No. There is no immediate score - they would have to wait until the start of their next turn for the 5 points as you can only score on scoring mounds at the start of your turn. This gives the opposition a chance to try to tackle or kill the player and try to prevent the 5 points being scored.
