If I dry hop in the keg, I place the pellet or leaf into a paint strainer bag and tie it off with dental floss (I Star San the bag & floss). Tie to the keg post, drop into keg, rack beer into keg. I don't remove it until I have killed the keg. You can weigh the bag down if you like but I find that once the hops get saturated they sink.

Oh, and I gave up cold crashing long ago. My beer always clears nicely after a few weeks on the gas + I normal use whir floc so CCing became redundant.

Anywhere below the rubber gromet/gasket on the post. You can also tie it to the handle but this takes more floss.

So, the floss goes in thru the lid?

2 weeks at room temp seems to be too long for dry hopping. Can I start carbing, degas after a week to add hops, and then re-pressurize to finish carbing? (= 2 weeks of co2, one week of dry hopping at the end).

I dry hop in my serving keg using a nylon fine mesh bag.

You can do that if you want.

I wouldn't. I'd just add the hops (in a bag for pellets, or a tea ball for leaf hops), and then rack the beer into it. My hops stay in the keg until the keg is gone. Of course, I keep my kegs in the kegerator. If I was dryhopping at room temperature, I'd dryhop in the fermenter for 3-7 days, and then keg.
