In the 9 ball, any time I was going to hit the rail with any speed, it caused a big "jump" in my stance, because the red label rails literally pick up speed when hit directly.

Like Bob said, it isn't going to happen because physics won't allow it. What you are actually experiencing is the ball staying on the rail for a shorter period of time and thereby giving the illusion of gaining speed when it comes off the rail. Baseball fans noted this same effect back in the sixties when Astro-turf was introduced.
As for the rest of it, maybe you do play as bad as you pretend.
