Thank you for the post, and an opportunity to learn more Pali terms.
We learned before of the 4 conditions for the sotapanna stage:
Are yonisomanasikāro and dhammānudhammappaṭipatti equivalent to getting to Anuloma Khanti and Sammattaniyāma?

Yes. They are equivalent.
The main requirements:
will fulfill Anuloma Khanti and Sammattaniyāma.
The key point is that while fulfilling those 4 conditions one must realize not only the fact that the rebirth process is filled with suffering but also the fact that Nibbana is the only solution.
See, “Sōtapanna Anugāmi and a Sōtapanna”
I should have mentioned this post. Thanks!
P.S. I need to update that older post. Hope to do it soon.

Thank you, Lal.
I’m now back to reading the posts on the Sotapanna stage, so this is great.
One more question: what is the breakdown of the word Sammattaniyāma?
Does it have to do with samma + atta + niyama?

I have not seen a breakdown. But it could be the following.
Sama = “same”
atta = “truth” or “refuge” or “Nibbana” depending on the context
niyama = principle or law
When you put all that together it rhymes like “Sammattaniyāma.”
So, when someone gets to Sammattaniyāma one “starts taking refuge in Nibbana.”
