No, an FAQ should not get you the expertise to create a commercial grade product. Reading the documentation should though. You don't want users to have to study source code.

That's never been case on this list as far as I recall, folk here are
pretty responsive to questions being asked.

At the same time, OE/Poky/Yocto is a fairly complex framework and nobody
should expect that the necessary expertize to build a commercial grade
products with it can be acquired by simply reading a FAQ, no matter how
well written, or by just endlessly asking questions on a mailing list.
As a commercial player you are either prepared to make the in house
investment that is necessary to acquire that expertize (reading the
documentation and studying the source code, etc.), or you you can buy
the expertize on commercial basis from someone who has it.
