I think you have already received answers to most of your questions.
Here comes some more hints for your last question.

     6. In the second measure after the change to 2/2 time, the word
        "Andante" spills out both before and after the measure.  The
        measure should expand so that the word can fit.

The relevant code from your example was:
        \fatText R1^\markup { \bold "Andante" } |
The reason that \fatText doesn't make any difference here is that
this macro is a shorthand for
\override TextScript  #'no-spacing-rods = ##f
which only applies to ordinary text scripts, i.e. that you attach the
markup to an ordinary note. When you instead attach it to a full bar
rest, then it will be typeset by a layout object called
MultiMeasureRestText instead. It might help to do
\override MultiMeasureRestText  #'no-spacing-rods = ##f
(unfortunately, I don't have access to a running LilyPond here
for the moment). If that doesn't help, then you could attach the text
to a spacing note instead:
<< R1 {\fatText s1^\markup { \bold "Andante" } } >> |
