Dayton Audio PK165-8 6" Professional Kevlar/Paper Cone Midrange Speaker
Would this function well as a paired speaker with a 10 inch guitar speaker and with a 3500 hz crossover?
It will work but you will be wasting a lot of the drivers potential. I would recommend crossing it lower, maybe around 800 Hz or so.

If I were to use the Dayton Audio PA380-8 15” driver #295-034 for bottom end, and this driver for mid-bass, what would a good crossover frequency be (I already have an idea for freq/slope for crossing this over to the horn)?
In order to get the most output from this driver, I would recommend crossing between 400-500 Hz. Higher will also work, but typical crossover points are in this range.

Would this be a good replacement for polk model 5 woofer
Unfortunately this will not produce much bass below about 80 Hz. I would recommend the Dayton Classic DC160-8 instead.

Bass guitar speakers?
Would these be good in a bi-amped bass guitar rig? I have a 4x10 cab and would like 2 of these (or similar) on top for a little high end help. I don't like the sound of horns on bass cabs, however I would like some more bark in the upper freq. range. High wattage isn't necessary, this is for home use.
Yes. If you've an aversion to horns, I'd say these may be just the ticket to provide that bit of "bark" you're seeking.

What cross over should i use
I want to pair two of these and one Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter per tower speaker. I was wondering if that is a good idea for great sound and if so what cross over should i buy? If that is not a good set up what recommendations do you have? thanks!
While prebuilt crossovers are available, the sound quality they produce is typically not so good, since they only use generalized "textbook" designs, and do not (cannot) factor in effects of the enclosure, etc.I would suggest gaining a general understanding of speaker systems and crossover design. There are several excellent resources, from PE's TechTalk forum, where you can "meet" a number of friendly and helpful people that share your interests, to various books available here.
