    Spark plugs can be intermittent faulty with temps. That rough idle simply could be one cyl dropping out. I'd rotate a spare set in just because. Injector could do that too. Sometimes even the ECU...

    The good thing about a wedge, is that you'll not loose thrust as compared to having to a trim system to achieve the same angle, hence why I've seen wedges mainly marketed to speed on glass conditions...

    Yes - They *should* add fresh grease to the IB housing (intermediate shaft bearing), and I'd highly suggest you make sure they do, as it's kinda a PITA to get at, because you typically need to move...

    Depends on where and what measured that value - but generally "yes" that's too low. A healthy batt on a DVM should read 12.8v minimum.
    But if that was read on the dash - could be the just circuit...

    I already know you can not spin the motor by hand . . . hence likely not a "dead spot" if the motor comes back alive after your repeated attempts to power it up.

    "volts" is one thing ......

    Basically yes - you got it.
