Learn songs - it's fun and puts these exercises into a musical context. Plus you never started playing guitar to run through scale patterns did you? You probably started playing guitar to play songs.

Have fun! I've improved so much by playing in bands so don't worry about not being good enough, you'll get better. As for practice, playing along with songs has always worked best for me.

I don't think anyone would be interested in learning your versions of songs. If you don't mind if anyone else sees your stuff why not just write it down somewhere?

When it's written out this way you're usually better just listening to the song to learn the changes.

A lot of rock guitarists use power chords, which you could call 'partial' chords. They use just the 1st and 5th of a chord, often with the 8th included.

I think it's just a natural harmonic.
Also either your guitar is out of tune or your bends need more practice. Keep it up though! :)
