Two questions about your list of repairs done:

Is there a difference between a differential and the RDM? I thought the functionality of the differential was subsumed into the RDM?

Regarding the SMOG test, my car has been registered in CA since I got it in 2012 and I have never been required to have a smog test done for renewing the registration. Is this a requirement because the car is being transferred? Just wondering.

Again, Welcome and it's great to have you with us.
When the vehicle has a transfer of ownership (at least in CA) you have to SMOG it. The smog is a computer scan to make sure no emission specific CEL's are on.

I know this car also had its PRNDL replaced at SV Fisker.

You are correct... motors are a part of the RDM. The RDM is collectively the differential and motors (Rear Drive Module) so my assumption from the above description is that both motors and differential were replaced/refurbished.
