It's a new theory proposed by modern scholars of Vālmīki Rāmāyaṇa based on textual criticism. As noted by Robert and Sally Goldman in their translation of Uttarakāṇḍa, the same traditional commentators who wrote commentaries on the previous kāṇḍas have also commented on Uttarakāṇḍa.

The two youngsters sing the ballad among the assemblages of sages and saints, and win laurels. Rama on seeing the boys singing on the streets and king's ways of Ayodhya, ...

Kalki is the Avatar of Kaliyuga. Though Lord Venkateswara is born to fulfill some of the promises he made in previous incarnations but he didnt kill any evil. Logically Kalki will fight with Kali who is the head of Lust, gold etc.. currently kali is not visible to the physical world. so Kalki will be too. Kalki will fight with Kali in a different dimension ...

No. Sambara was not killed by Dasaratha at all. He was actually killed by Pradyumna. It says here Pradyumna escaped, and after eventually growing up, killed Sambara and married his wife.
