Rules question: With Black Market, can only 1 Castle be in the deck? And how do you choose which one?
Same question for the split piles,  can you have either of the cards in the BM deck, and how would you choose it?

I believe Donald's ruling for this so far has been: do what you want. Which is a fine ruling, I think.

What I envision Black Market doing is creating a Black Market supply.  For each card in the Black Market deck, there is a pile in the Black Market supply that is set up just as it would have been in the real supply.  So, for example, if Castles were in the Black Market supply, Humble Castle would be on top just like in the real supply.  Since each pile in the Black Market supply can be accessed only once, the top card (Humble Castle) is the only one that can ever be purchased.

Of course, that's just my logic for figuring out how I would want to handle this in my IRL games.  Until this question is answered by the online version, I guess anything goes.

This is why BM is a promo card; but somehow in Dominion promo cards get treated the same as actual cards. This is perfectly fine for Envoy and Walled Village, but not so much for BM.

So the ruling of "do whatever you want" seems fine to me.

Remodel Haunted Castle into a province, then graverobber it back to attack everyone again.

Seaway doesn't specify a pile type, you can gain one of the Action - Castles with it after reducing the cost.

Oh interesting; I wouldn't have noticed the difference between Seaway and the others in the way they restrict the token to an action. I suppose because before now, it never mattered. So yes, Buy would be the only one of the tokens you can put on Castles, but the statement about it being a "treasure" pile was wrong.

"Whatever I want", for me, involves putting in one of the 8 Castles in there randomly.  Also, only 1 card from each split pile, also random.

Dude. You could play a game where the Black Market deck was all of the Castles, all of the Knights, and one card from each half of each split pile.

I probably wouldn't put the bottom half card of a split pile into the Black Market; because it just feels like those cards shouldn't be available until the top half has been gained (or trashed).

I'm aware.  And last time I checked, your ruling was "whatever I want".  :P
