Rosy boa is not under the genus of Charina.

It's possible that it was in that genus in the past (I don't know for certain, but I think it's very likely).

Taxonomy has lots of synonyms and is very fluid

Sometimes the taxonomy can change, so the list can have different taxonomy stuff from some websites.

Even if it may be wrong go off of the list they provide, its the same list the test writers will model their test's around.

Since I don't have a printer friendly version of my field guide, can I just tape a piece of paper to it with three holes to attach to the 2-inch binder?

I probably wouldn't put a field guide in a binder, as that will probably use up most of the binder space that you have in there.

You could always copy the relevant material onto your computer – that both helps you use space efficiently and helps you remember the general gist of things (although whether that's an efficient use of your time is debatable). Another option is scanning the pages.

First of all, this is unrelated but I thought you were Unome because of your profile picture.
Second of all, you absolutely can, but you may want to consider making some adjustments because a few genera were added and removed.
Also, if your binder is larger than 2 inches, you have to accommodate the new rule.
I know stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I kind of know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, fossils, and water... hopefully I'll get to keep learning.

This is exactly what I did last year. I just paraphrased what information it had.

I have an invitation coming up and I haven't completed my reference pages yet, so would it be legal to attack a field guide to a binder this way?

I would assume you can attack a field guide to your binder as long as it fits in a 2 inch one.

I'll try it at the invitational and I'll just hope I won't get penalized or DQed. I'm currently creating my own reference pages for the future. I'll let you know how it goes.
