Was wondering about some lore in regards to cultures. Did most tribes use the same/similar language to communicate or were they independent of each other? What about other cultural differences, such as their use of items, religious rituals/beliefs, and general attitude towards others? Is there anywhere I can read about this information in detail? Thanks!

It's huge topic in detail, but there's something put down in game encyclopedia for each in-game culture.
But if you're looking for historical details and research then some web searches for "iron age finland" may get you going, or I can recommend a book or two.

The encyclopedia is good, but I think a web search should suffice for what I'm looking for. I was just conceptualizing a possible mod and was wondering about general dispositions between the inhabitants and the such, for immersion purposes. I'll look into it more when I find inspiration for the mod. Thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

In English you could try find "Finnish Folk Culture" by Ilmar Talve. It cover many, many, many aspects of...well...Finnish folk culture, and even though it's not about iron-age per se you'll get a picture of archaic and age-old traditions.
