@MCM I have updated the question. You might like to answer the referenced question as well, please do :)

I want to underline 1 fact about speciation, although you don't object to this. Speciation doesn't necessarily mean the lack of ability to produce healthy offsprings. For instance, Lions and Tigers ( Two different species) can reproduce healthy offsprings (Liger and Tiglons), but they don't mate in the nature. So speciation also requires the lack of inclination to mating with the other.
comment Can two humans with 44 chromosomes produce viable offspring?
same Robertsonian Translocation is claimed to have happened for us the human. and This translocation might have created a few new genes that separated us from Chimpanzee. I mean, although that 44 chromozomed guy have the same genetic codes, he might have additional genes as well which lead him to be a different species, right? thetech.org/genetics/news.php?id=124
