Add sugar to the bottling bucket. I have almost forgotten this way too many times. A good brewing assistant helps avoid gotchas.

Maybe a bit, but not really. If you're really concerned about clear beer, you could always cold crash it.

Me, I'd just leave it for another week and follow all of Hammy's other excellent advice.

The only advantage to dark bottles is that they keep light out. If the beer is stored in the dark, there is no advantage.

Kegging won't improve your beer. It will only ease packaging and access.

Harvesting yeast with less non-yeast material is the only benefit I can see. I've even harvested yeast from a primary that I've dry hopped in. This was lazy, and it worked fine. However, I try not...

I would say 1.016 is a fine finishing gravity for most beers. Sometimes it's desirable to go lower, but I wouldn't worry about it. If it tastes great, you've done well.

After 2.5 weeks, I'm...

If you have the money to keg, and you don't mind only having as many varieties as you have kegs, I think kegging sounds wonderful.

For me, I'd rather spend my beer money on more ingredients, and I...

If you can keep them dry in the refrigerator, I imagine that would be good. I usually just keep mine in a cupboard.

They should still be fine. Your LHBS is correct that milled grains should be used sooner rather than later, but I think if they're kept dry, no harm will come to them within a few weeks.

I don't use a secondary. I have often left beer on the yeast cake for over a month with no ill effects. I'm not unique in this regard.

Dry yeast is cheaper, has a longer shelf life, and you get more of it in a package. I actually did a comparison in a blog post (http://kissbrew.com/yeast-dry-vs-liquid/).

This is my attitude as well.

It's good to be able to hit your numbers to replicate recipes, but the whole point is to make good beer. If you're doing that, you're winning at homebrewing.
