1. Yes
2. Yes
3. While there are plenty of things that could be changed, there is no need.  This keeps the codes and the methods versatile and why things are the way they are.  There will be no speed increases or anything measurable by custom tailoring something for you.  This should not inhibit you from doing so though.  I will suggest if you don't use PowerDVD, don't create the PDVD3DISO.bat and vice versa for MPC-BE and the MPCBE3DISO.  Don't be fooled by the names of the .bats.  They are required for 2D also although if you don't use 3D, the .bats could easily be omitted and code in the playercorefactory.xml be edited by directing a path to the additional external player and delete the lines of code for the .bats (players).  Again, you won't gain anything by doing this except simpler code.  The same applies if not using iso and only using mkv. 

4. Yes.  After you save it, go back to RGB, select full, and save it.  The bit will be blank.  Leave it.  It will change to 12 bit and dither down to 10 when you play a video and go back to RGB 8 bit when in Desktop mode.  There are dozens of other ways to do this but this way is easiest to explain.  Fwiw, recently I have been applying 'use default settings' in NCP.  Then selecting 'Auto' in my panel instead of 'Full'.  The only side effect I've noticed is 'Certain' videos in PDVD do not apply the correct color space.  Most do.  This is a PDVD bug I've only noticed using this player.  It also has a problem applying the correct resolution match using certain .mkv files unlike .iso's.  Using RGB FULL everywhere does not present this anomaly so it's users choice.

5. Latest everything.  I have stopped using Leia x64.  I prefer Titan skin and it's x64 beta is simply too buggy to use with Leia.  I've also noticed iso menus are working pretty damn good with v.17.6.  When select playlist appears, choose 'show Blu-ray menu'.  Seek seems to be a challenge though.  Might just be on my end, not sure?

Don't apologize for a long post.  The more info the better.  Besides, that's a simple note by my standards!
P.S. All my Harmony remote buttons are harmonious with PDVD, MPC, and Kodi.  You mentioned subtitles.  Some are different.  To map MPC sub selection, use 'T' in 'Menu Subtitle Language' in 'Keys' of MPC using Keyboard Device.  The same key in Kodi turns subs off and on.  To map sub selection in Kodi, use 'NextSubtitle' using Media Center PC Device in Logitech Remote GUI.  There are others but these are for subs.

Please rate the stars at the top of the page how you see fit.  Trying to achieve 5 stars but not many vote.
