I have to put my first runnings into a bucket because of lack of space. Are there any aeration problems with pouring this into the kettle or should it be siphoned?

I always dump my runnings into the boil kettle with wild abandon; haven't ever had problems with hot side aeration.

I've read you shouldn't pour hot wort, even preboil. However, I boil on my stove. NO way I can lift 6.5 gallons of 155 degree wort from the ground to my stove top. I always have to pour the sparge runnings into my "already starting to boil brewpot". No off-tastes so far that I could identify.

Cool, i'll climb up a step ladder and dump it from 8 feet in the air.

I do that too. I collect my first and second runnings into a bucket (to measure the volume collected) and then dump them into the boil kettle. No evidence of HSA yet.

If you're concerned with HSA, you could collect in a bucket with a spigot and let it drain into the kettle slowly through some tubing.
