I can't get my codas right. I want (as per normal practice) to have a
"missing system" between the main body of the music and the coda. No
problem putting a line-break in, but how do I put extra space in there
to make it stand out? Even worse! How do I mark it up correctly?...

Maybe this can help you in the right direction:
\relative c' {
    \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #right
    c4 c c c \mark "D.S. al Coda" | \bar "|."
    \stopStaff s1 \startStaff |
    \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #left
    \mark "Coda" c c c c |

...Lily calculates how many lines it needs to set
the music. Is there any way to get between this and the actual
typesetting, and say "never mind how many you think you need, use this
number"? If I can tell lily that it needs to use ten lines...

This is already supported. You want this:
\paper {
  system-count = #10
