If I run a query (let's call it "Accounts") against a pass-through query and I have already executed the pass-through previously, does the pass through get executed again every time  I run "Accounts"?

I believe so but I haven't actually tested it.  I would not think the return recordset would be cached.
In most situations I'd think we'd want the pass-through query to execute every time to capture any recent changes.

Yes I need to Just snapshot the data.  Otherwise I need to create another Make Table Query to create my shadow table.  I would give you the points if you can confirm it.

This is something you can test easily yourself.  Run a pass-through query on a table.  Edit a record in the table.  Run the pass-through query again.

If you want a snapshot of the dataset returned by the pass-through query then you should use a temp table.

Yes, a passthrough query retrieves fresh data from the server every time it runs.
