You may have to play around with full grip or thumbless or maybe move grip in closer or out a little farther.
1) Yep. You shouldn't be supporting the bar with your wrists, your wrists keep the bar plush against your body, big difference.

2) As you take the bar out of the rack, you're already hunched over and your legs aren't quite locked out. Get right underneath the bar and stand up straight with it, then walk it out with authority. You're taking the bar from the rack hunched up, so it's inevitable you'll do the rep hunched over as well. Sorting this will help with strength and staying more upright.

3) As far as the squat goes, you would benefit considerably from going wider. If you're going to do a power squat then go ahead and move your feet out and do it properly. Keeping your legs at a moderate stance just doesn't make sense for some people when they try to squat power style.

4) Work your hip/ham/inner thigh flexibility to aid the above.

5) Consider a faster descent.

6) Your legs need strengthening. Get on that Leg Press, do them heavy and deep
