Looks like you have it figured out. I wish I could be of more help, but I don't know about that rubber.

Thanks. First thing I asked was if the rubber seemed ok... they said it did, for whatever that's worth. ;)

Inserts and trim rings can come loose, so can metal joints. That would be the first thing I would check. On cheaper cues, if those parts rotate at all it can throw things off.

You could use joint protectors. Keep them on there anytime the cue is apart, and you should eliminate the issue. Maybe wipe the joint faces once in a while with a clean cloth and some alcohol....

There is enough adjustment in the table legs to accommodate that much slope. I'd probably put a shim under the low legs anyway.

Probably not worth it. It has a slate bed, but literally every thing else is particle board.

The vast majority of piloted joints in production cues serve no real purpose.
If it fits the cue well, you're fine.

Scoring the tip or ferrule is a great idea if you're using hide glue or something similar. It's counter-productive with cyanoacrylate adhesive.

The deflection difference is very slight, and the likelihood of failure is higher with no ferrule. The bigger the bore hole is, the more a ferrule is necessary, so the extra ferrule weight is offset.
