Hi Ed.
1. If you can cut the plywood at the red lines and get enough blocking under there for support, I see nothing wrong with it. If you can cut the hole in the plywood so the 4 nubs on the bottom of the flange can rest on the plywood, that would support the drain well and also leave about 3/4 inch for the felt, lath and preslope.

2. Any way you want to build out that wall will work. You might need to add another stud to the back wall in the right corner.

3. If I understand correctly, you want to add a jamb to each side, narrowing the opening. We see this quite often, sometimes 5-6 inches on each side, or more.

I appreciate your helpful comments Davy, which tells me I'm not off base with my plan so far.

And here's one more noob question, for which I can't find much written about online. The most typical finished curb width that I've seen is in the range of 5-6", which starts with a 3 1/2" wide core of stud lumber.

Is a narrower curb width acceptable - something in the range of 4 - 4 1/2" ? (starting with a correspondingly narrower wood core).

Any reason to stay away from a narrower curb?

Perfectly acceptable, Ed.

My opinion; worth price charged.

CX, thanks for confirming that a narrower curb is ok. I'm going to lay out some lines for a 2" wood core and a finished 4" curb/walls, and see how that fits in with everything else.
