If you use first strike to summon Emrakul, the Aeons Torn he will attack, be discarded, returned to your library, and then you get a second turn?? So can you simply cast first strike again and start this process over?

What card are you using?
The ability "First Strike" only affects when creatures that are in combat (attacking or blocking) deal damage, it doesn't put creatures into play attacking.
Please try & reformulate your question.

If I steal a hundred dollar from a loot of one thousand, people might notice;

If I steal a hundred dollar from a loot of one million, I might get away with it;

If I wish to steal even more and still go unnoticed, I need to make the loot bigger.

 

Now you know why taxes always go up.

First strike isn't a card, but I will try to answer your question.

You seem to be asking: "If I can use a spell or ability to search my library for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and put it onto the battlefield, will I get a second turn?"

The answer is no. You must cast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn in order to get the second turn. Simply having him put on the battlefield is not enough.

If this isn't your question, please use autocard to link the cards you are using and restate the question with more detail.

To autocard: 
[c]Emrakul, the Aeons Torn[/c] = Emrakul, the Aeons Torn 
Sorry Sneak Attack!!! Not first strike...
Sorry Sneak Attack!!! Not first strike...
Sorry Sneak Attack!!! Not first strike...
with Sneak Attack Emmy can attack, will be sacrificed at end of turn and shuffled back into the library, yes

If you use Sneak Attack to summon Emrakul, the Aeons Torn he will attack, be discarded, returned to your library, and then you get a second turn?? So can you simply cast first strike again and start this process over? 

Summon is an outdated term, the new term is cast. Either way, Sneak Attack does not cast spells, so you will not get a second turn.

Secondly, while Emrakul, the Aeons Torn will be shuffled into your library after being sacrificed at the end of the turn, you cannot use Sneak Attack on it again, because you need to have the creature card in your hand.

Also, the card is not "discarded" from the battlefield. Discarding is the act of taking a card in your hand and moving it to the graveyard. In this case you are sacrificing the creature.
If Emmy said "when (Emmy) enters the battlefield, take an extra turn after this one", then you would get your extra turn. However, she instead says "when you cast (Emmy)...", so you have to actually cast her, not just put her onto the battlefield (in fact, you get the extra turn if you do cast her even if the spell never resolves and she doesnt enter the battlefield).

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.

you could combo Emrakul, the Aeons Torn with nightscape apprentice for infinite turns (if you have 16 mana)

use nightscape's first ability to return emrakul to your library, next turn you get him and cast him again. rinse lather repeat

Nit:

Discarding is the act of taking a card in your hand and moving it to the graveyard. In this case you are sacrificing the creature.

Not quite. Discarding is not that act. Were someting to trigger on discarding or replace discarding, it would not trigger on that act or replace that act. Discarding is merely the act of performing the discard action.

You should have said: To discard, one takes a card from one's hand and moves it to the graveyard.
