There's really no good way to fix what you have. The gap is too wide for caulk. It's too irregular to fill in with a strip of wood, even if it is outside the wet area.

If the cuts aren't exposed, why not just cut them with a grinder a 4" blade? A good blade is around $50. I just set the tile on a work table with some towels or foam to absorb the vibration and to...

If it's just for the shower head, then yes, you can seal it that way. Frankly, you're not going to see any moisture collect up there that would penetrate the wall board.

Yes, always level on top of the cement board.

I'll second that about the mud floor vs. foam tray. I would do a 1/2" slope with pebbles, something the tray can't do.

I've never used them, so I don't know of you could use a table saw to create that slope.
