Based on the above, it should be transliterated Haftorah, because it is a ??? ???, which in correct Sephardi pronunciation is pronounced “oh.”

Nope, it is pronounced as aw as in “kawl Yisroel areivim zeh lazeh.” The other kamatz is pronounced as ah as in Yisrah-el.

Wolf, you actually said in a much better way, what I more or less thought as a child. No, you were not and are not an idiot. i think to this day many people forget that the word haftara is spelled with a Tes and not a Tov.
