Fazc, first I laughed my ass off, but them I put in my serious face. Thank you for taking the time to give a detailed critique. I'll address each point in order.

1 I never really tried anything with head position for DL. I'll be looking to get my upper spine straight next time now.

2 Should I allow the rounding and just compensate, or just fix the rounding? Some of the things you mention seem a little counter-intuitive. Will training knees forward now hold me back later? Bracing abs might be a weak point, I'm aware that my abs are not as strong as I'd like.

3 Hoping this comes with the the other items.

4 No doubt! This was one of the better ones!

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
