The premade benches are fine, but framing one isn't too tough. Usually it's cheaper and takes about the same amount of time if you're having to modify the size or shape.

Try starting in the center for both directions. You can either center on a tile or a grout line. Always try and avoid slivers when possible.

Theoretically yes, but it needs to be a full spread trowel kerdifix application and I will tell you from experience that it turns into a mess pretty easily.

Modified for the kerdi over plywood is fine.
Sikaflex is used as a substitute for kerdifix by some but you'll have no backing by schluter.

Silicone all changes of plane.
Laticrete has a new premixed option called Spectralock 1. It is steam rated and has similar performance to epoxy once cured.

Cq has a rounded aggregate that rarely scratches. In my experiences I've never had any issues with it scratching glass. You'll want a soft float I like urethane personally
