alot of times, a question or situation comes up here in tech/ops and ive come to realize that on top of the manufacturer's operation limitations or procedure, the airline may have their own, such as flap setting on a go around to minimum altitudes for varius things. it seems like each airline has their own operating procedures to some extent? why is that?

All the above listed reasons are correct, but oddly enough, the largest airline in SE Asia (now) was a tad smaller years ago, and the largest fleet was the B707.
At that time, SQ issued ops manuals to their new crew, and these were...the Boeing manuals with a 'Singapore Airlines' sticker on the front.
No problems whatsoever.
Several airlines operating the Lockheed TriStar did the same....Lockheed procedures exclusively.
Smart folks, in my opinion.
