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

Ditra heat can be used on your pan. Just follow the tutorials they provide. Install the pan, then the ditra heat, then everything must be covered with kerdi membrane.

As far as the bow in the drywall...
It would be a good idea to go ahead and address that issue now. A bow in the wall will cause issues as you tile that area.

Will it work? Yes, if everything is overlapped and installed properly. But keep in mind it is the bare minimum.

I believe you're on the right track. Questions should never scare an installer. I will say that many installers may avoid a customer that seems overbearing. Or they submit a slightly higher price...

Up to you, there's no real standard for that. If you want a larger piece of tile add to it. Around 2-3" is pretty common

I hope for your sake that he didn't use purple board in the shower. When most say purple/green board they are referring to the drywall that has a waxy coating.

Personally I wouldn't. With that said, as long as you find one that is floor rated and you leave the proper expansion gaps around the perimeter of the glass then go for it. Glass is pretty slick,...
