It doesn't matter where the tank is. Pressure is pressure. Your tank WILL read a lower pressure when it's cold than when it's warm but the same amount of gas is still in there.

I usually recruit someone to fill a bottle with a couple ounces, put thumb over opening, and shake. Dump back into pot of star san. Set on a cookie sheet and repeat for the next bottles.

Place your primary bucket on the shelf and wait half a day. Anything that got stirred up should mostly settle. Other than that just keep your siphon off the bottom and lower it as the beer level goes...

Just dump it all in, I don't think it really matters. If you use a lot of hops then filtering through a strainer isn't a bad idea. I did a brew with 6-8 ounces of hops once and had a LOT of trub.

You should be fine. You still have a respectable OG so it will still be alcoholic. Don't do anything to it.

You could always pour it into a bottling bucket, then just put the better bottle under the spigot. That would be the free solution, or just buy a big funnel
