Yes, that is what I see as well.

       Yes, that should work.

        Should work, but also Ethernet should work, as long as you do not specify anything, or rather -14 ;)

Yes. In essence that is the trick, it might make sense to look at cake' statistics especially the max length field, which if you have lla set at none reach 1514 if the kernel automatically adds it's 14 bytes.

        Only if you despise the GUI or only have ssh access, I guess... Functionally it should boil down to the same, as the GUI simply fills /etc/config/sqm with values and then calls /etc/init.d/sqm to actually start the scripts...
