Eq1: y = x1 + x2 + z Eq2: x1 = m1 + m2 + x2 + z Eq3: x2 = n1 + n2 + x1 + z Eq4: m1 = q1 + q2 + z Eq5: m2 = p1 + p2 + z

A systems estimator is never needed unless you want to impose constraints across equations on the coefficients. There is nothing wrong with limited-information (single-equation) estimation of each equation in turn. A systems estimator can provide efficiency; but on the other hand any misspecification means that every equation's coefficients can become inconsistent if one equation is flawed.
