I know this may be a little to broad to answer very objectively, once package is approved by FEsCo or whoever, one would go ahead and follow guidelines and build the package in koji system ,where will it go? rawhide? or updates-testing?(how long would they stay there?) is there a way or circumstance(for new packages) where intermediate repos can be skiped?

what is this repo "koji-overridden"?(i have seen in yumex)

can new packages be introduced after the release of a version of fedora?

I request all you folks to answer , atleast the last two questions.

Yes.

, once package is approved by FEsCo or whoever,

FESCO doesn't need to approve every package. Any fedora package maintainer can approve a package from another fedora packager, unless it's the first package from that user, and then it needs to be approved by a packager with the "sponsor" rank. see Join the package collection maintainers for more information.

where will it go? rawhide? or updates-testing?

It will always go to rawhide. whether it'll go for the other two supported releases is something the package maintainer can decide. For stable releases, the package need to be submitted in the bodhi update system. Then, it'll be pushed to updates-testing.

After +-7 days in testing, or 3 bodhi karma points (whatever comes first) it'll be pushed to the stable updates repository.

is there a way or circumstance(for new packages) where intermediate repos can be skiped?

No.
