No. A character lies about dead cats being found in the walls as the reason she’s packed up her office, but she’s really been fired from her job.

No, but there's heavy flirting and overt commenting plus slight inappropriate touching, all amounting to what would definitely be termed sexual harassment (female bosses towards a male employee).

A "good guy" who's possessed lifts someone by the throat, which of course makes it hard or impossible to breathe. However, it's brief, and there's no gasping or gurgling or the like.

No, but there are human-shaped figures enveloped in flickering red light rays, fighting to get free, which may look enough like someone burning alive to trigger some.

There is a part in the beginning where a man is running up a set of stairs and they break underneath his foot and his ankle twists in a pretty gnarly way. It’s very quick so it’s easy to miss and the guy doesn’t seem to have any injuries later.

Not really, but a character is trying to run up a staircase to escape from a ghost and the steps break beneath his feet, causing him to fall.

In one scene a mannequin is possessed and chases the Ghostbusters. It's pretty intense if mannequins creep you out.

A ghost does it towards the beginning. It happens again with roughly 40 minutes left in the movie. Abby vomits the ectoplasm just like the ghost did at the beginning. It can be seen coming out from under the door and some other cracks. But it is just slime and not normal vomit. It can still be bothersome for people though.

One of the characters has trauma to do with not being believed when it comes to the paranormal. She had a pretty traumatic ghost experience as a child and no one - even her parents - believed her.

During the scene with the main characters in the Alridge Mansion, one of them eats Pringle’s and the crunching sounds are heard. I’m very sensitive to eating/mouth sounds and this doesn’t bug me at all.

Yes, if you identify with a gigantic semi-humanoid ghost - it purposely swells to the point where it fills an entire highrise, then bursts free of it.

By gripping two large electrically charged poles (for lack of a better word), one in each hand. The person does it with the intent of coming back as a ghost to achieve their goals, not out of depression, grief or the like.

LOTS of flashing lights! Brightly coloured, wildly flickering electric rays all over the place a lot of the time, plus many, many instances of ghosts emitting or surrounded by large quantities of bright light, some of the ghosts or just their lights moving very fast. I have no idea why several people have answered no to this question. You rarely see movies with this many flashing/flickering/swirling/fast-moving/sizeable lights.

Leslie Jones' character felt a bit like the "sassy black woman who screams everything" stereotype IMO, not done in as racist of a way as most instances of that trope but I feel it's worth mentioning.

As a somewhat reversal of the trope "pretty dumb blonde woman" this movie features Kevin, played by Chris Hemsworth, who is mainly there to serve as eye-candy.
