If when making a shot the basket fell over because of impact of the disc with the cenetr pole would it still have counted? lose basket on a hill or bad stand.

Or even a gust of wind?

I would think you would have to reset the basket and retake the shot without penalty

What would happen if a UFO shot my disc out of the air and it ended up in orbit?

There's no rule for a basket falling over because it shouldn't happen. If it did the TD would have to make ruling based on their own judgement. The rule book can't cover everything.

Even more, if the shot that knocked over the basket was an Ace shot, are you still required to pay $5?

No one is required even if it didn't knock over the basket.

Required, no. But you will get called a cheapskate if you don't pay the shooter

Cheapskate? I'd be using funnier and meaner words.
