I think they claim most of these for the sake of "claiming them"

There's definitely historical context here. A lot of these disputes were (obviously) resolved by the government of the People's Republic, which I believe the ROC refuses to recognize and thus also won't drop the claims.

I understand the PRC claims along with the PRC's border disputes(except for Arunachal Pradesh) but why do they claim parts of Russia, Pakistan, and Even Kazakhstan?

Ok. When the ROC succeeded the Qing Dynasty, they claimed all the land that belonged to them. And still do today

Yes, and in addition to that, the treaties that the PRC made over these disputes may have been something the ROC would have done as well, but recognizing the treaties would mean recognizing the PRC, and other countries can’t make treaties with a country that the PRC won’t let them recognize.

I thought it was just the PRC, Mongolia and PRC's claims in the South China Sea. This is even more ambitious than what I expected.

Nevertheless, I doubt that they will ever try and take these territories even if they regain control of the mainland.

All I can say is good luck convincing Russia and North Korea to give some land to you and China to give ALL of its land.

Absolutely wrong. Taiwan is an Island, but Republic of China is a Country!

Taiwan is the common name for the Republic of China. It is not wrong.

The Senkaku Islands/Diaoyu Islands dispute with Japan is not in "Mainland", is it?

I love how delusional Taiwanese politicians are LMFAO. WIth 13 countries recognizing them, they want land from Russia , DPRK, and all of China? Is this serious?

It has historical basis, however. Since the Republic of China is essentially a rump state of the former pre-1949 government of China, it does still entail most of its claims it had even back then. This goes back all the way to the time of Qing dynasty, whose fall in 1911-1912 created a lot of disputes in the process. Mongolia is confusing though however, since effective recognition of their independence occurred around 2002.

And with that, I'd say it's pretty important to see the bigger picture here.
