You will only progress if you are consistent in your practice. It's better to practice 30 mins everyday than 10 hours straight, once a week

I'm talking from personal experience.
It's not really a technique in itself it just comes from a more accurate picking hand.

You should have the accuracy to only hit 3 strings if that's what you want... I like to mute anyway just to be extra safe.

If you are playing adjacent strings you only need to mute one string...

Your right hand should be muting the lower frequencies.

It doesn't require much pressure, just rest the right hand slightly on the strings you don't want to ring.

I would say yes (assuming they do live perfomances and don't play pre recorded sets...) but the skill level is nowhere near what it takes to play an instrument or compose quality music.

Singing and playing at the same time/ playing with an acapella vocal track of a song you never heard of.

Metronomes that mute for a bar or 2 are also good for your internal timing.

In the first clip I think you are talking about the raking. Basically you have to scrape 3 or 4 muted strings before the bend. You mute them with your right hand

+1 for first paragraph
I don't agree with the second one though. I think it's more related to a general standard than something as subjective as you made it out to be.

Transpose it even lower by using barre chords, if you can't do them, either tune down or try capo on 11th fret and lower it until you are comfortable
