You dont need to do anything different. Adding some fresh yeast at bottling might speed up the carbonation process but in my experience it isnt necessary. I would just add enough sugar to give you...

I agree with the others, I have never gotten the amount of complexity and acidity I am looking for with a clean primary and adding bugs in secondary. I would pitch them all in the primary.

I think the problem has to be where your temp probe is located. Try changing it to a T on the output of your kettle and you shouldnt have any issues. This way it is taking the temp of the hottest...

I really dont see the point in not mashing with your full volume. For me it defeats the purpose of BIAB, ease and simplicity. If you have to heat more water it requires another vessel and another...
