Proposed answer

Replace the ? With a colon : on the strength of replace fair game and crohns inflamed.

So 1

Mark: Take aim. Colon is a punctuation mark and concentrates attention

2

Action: Misnamed. It is kind of yes but not really a Riddle: Word game. Or, instead of a question and answer, each line is now an imperative statement.

3

Usage: Explain. Yes, this is what I am doing now.

4

Replace: Fair game. Thank you for the permission!

Hint 1

Crohn's: Inflamed. Because Crohn's is colon inflammation.

I got nothing for hint 2

  • $\begingroup$ Your answer is correct! The intended explanation for hint 3 is that rot13(lbh bsgra hfr n pbyba gb rkcynva jung pbzrf nsgre), and for hint 2, perhaps rot13(guvax bs n qvssrerag glcr bs pbyba) $\endgroup$ – Quintec Nov 28 at 17:08
  • $\begingroup$ For closure, note that 2 is rot13(Cristobal Colon, who thought he had discovered Indians) $\endgroup$ – Quintec Dec 8 at 15:51
