It has to have an initial velocity in order for the particle to move away from the equilibrium point (top).

Why the ALL CAPS on the title? It is considered yelling, and thus rude.

comment When only part of the surface an object is in contact with has friction, what is the normal force I should use?
Yes, friction would create an applied torque, which would need to be reacted upon from the load distribution. On the other hand, we don't know where the force to push the block is applied and if it creates a torque also. So there isn't enough information to really solve this.

@Floris I know quite a lot about contact pressure distributions and in this situation the reactions are concentrated on the edges. Similar to physics.stackexchange.com/a/253337/392. Only if the block had curvature the pressure distribution would be "even".

comment Apply torque in 3d
You use the equations of motion to describe how the orientation changes.

Depends on how you describe the orientation of the body.

comment How does force transmit through a solid block?
PowerPoint for the win! Actually the graphics are in PowerPoint and the math text in $\rm\TeX$. I used the IguanaTex add-in for powerpoint.

comment Finding $\theta$ at any point in time
Where $F_x$ is any horizontal driving force at the pivot, $\tau$ any torque at the pivot (like a rotational spring) and $F_y$ the vertical reaction force (to be calculated).
