Hi guys, would just like to check if I could still suspend and "cast" cards with Jhoira of the Ghitu after an Eternal Dominion, or is that the same thing as "playing" cards.

And since I haven't checked it out yet, I'll just like to make sure you can counter a card that is being cast due to the suspend ability?
You could exile a card using Jhoira's ability, but it couldn't leave exile.
702.48a Epic represents two spell abilities, one of which creates a delayed triggered ability. “Epic” means “For the rest of the game, you can’t cast spells,” and “At the beginning of each of your upkeeps for the rest of the game, copy this spell except for its epic ability. If the spell has any targets, you may choose new targets for the copy.” See rule 706.10.

702.60a Suspend is a keyword that represents three abilities. The first is a static ability that functions while the card with suspend is in a player’s hand. The second and third are triggered abilities that function in the exile zone. “Suspend N—[cost]” means “If you could begin to cast this card by putting it onto the stack from your hand, you may pay [cost] and exile it with N time counters on it. This action doesn’t use the stack,” and “At the beginning of your upkeep, if this card is suspended, remove a time counter from it,” and “When the last time counter is removed from this card, if it’s exiled, play it without paying its mana cost if able. If you can’t, it remains exiled. If you cast a creature spell this way, it gains haste until you lose control of the spell or the permanent it becomes.”

601.1a Some effects still refer to “playing” a card. “Playing a card” means playing that card as a land or casting that card as a spell, whichever is appropriate.

Since Jhoira only works with non-land cards, and you can't cast spells, the card cannot leave exile.

Yes, using Cancel or similar, you can counter a spell suspend instructed you to cast.
Thanks for the quick answers guys!
