Yeah I know it's not Q&A, but...

5) I'm going to start trying to find a way to make Linux handle the numeric key pad the same way Windows does when trying to select text. The fact that it's different really bugs the hell outa me.

your friend will be xmodmap. check the man page on how to use in interactive (for testing) and when you've got the codes figured toss them in a .Xmodmap file and it'll be auto done on login.
to get you started here's my .Xmodmap
keycode 79 = KP_Home    Home
keycode 80 = KP_Up      Up
keycode 81 = KP_Prior   Prior
keycode 83 = KP_Left    Left
keycode 84 = KP_Begin   Begin
keycode 85 = KP_Right   Right
keycode 87 = KP_End     End
keycode 88 = KP_Down    Down
keycode 89 = KP_Next    Next
keycode 90 = KP_Insert  Insert
keycode 91 = Delete     Delete


the way to find the keycodes is xev,
above first column is the key pessed without modifiers, 2nd column shifted (and there's more columns for ctrl &/| alt if needed.)

Basically I've made the shift-keypad entries the same as the Shift-non-keypad namesakes (except Delete which I've made always Delete)
