that is a long post. i will comment on 3 of your questions because that's all i can remember at the time.

1/2. abs/asc/dsc - removing the abs system will affect the tcs and vice-versa because they share certain components.

2. warming up - i don't know about the oil pump not functioning well, but regardless the best way to warm up a car is to drive it, but not spirited at first. leaving it idle when warming up is not good for the engine and cat. but when the engine is warmed up to its normal running temp. leaving it in idle is probably not bad.
i decided to find a relevant article since some ppl are for warming a car at idle:
