The correct procedure for submitting a paper for publication depends largely on the paper you're aiming for. Different papers have different styles and rules that they enforce. The guidelines can usually be found on the website for the particular paper under submissions.
I'd include it as it's own chapter for now. If you have ethical considerations, and ones that are higly specific to your research, then they need discussing. You don't want to get to the Viva stage and be asked why you didn't discuss the ethics in depth. Your supervisor will let you know as well if you've gone too far off piste with it as well. And if that's the case you can just cut it down and tag it on the end of the methodology.
All in all I'd go for it as it stands. I think it'd save time and tears later.
Rather than being an RA there might be teaching and marking work instead? It worked out around £17 per hour of teaching, or the same for a certain amount of papers (3 equalling an hour).
There wasn't an official call for applications as such just a general email sent round asking if anyone was interested. Then if they select you it was just a case of submitting a form with a CV attached to confirm it all.
I don't know about re-sitting the thrid year, but have you tried getting hold of an official copy of what the university did and your special circumstances and attaching that along with your first and second year transcripts? It's a lot extra to add to a CV but it should demonstrate the point more clearly.
You'd be doing the PhD and the work, not the institution. Whilst it might be nice to have a big name as the place you studied it's not that important. Much more important is the work you do, the papers you produce and your supervisors. Supervisor rep is more important than uni rep I feel.
As funding is quite competative then it's another feather in your cap but a fairly small and inconsequential one. Fundings mainly nice because you a) don't spend as much time tyring to balance PhD work and earning, and b) as Sneaks says often more value is placed on getting a funded student passed.
I use endnote web a lot as I don't have endnote at home. It works fine for me especially with linked sites such as WoK. It means a little more to and fro-ing occassionally but not so much that I feel the need to buy endnote, and I'm getting towards the end of it all now. That said £55 sounds like a decent price. Is that just for one year of use or is it indefinate?

Citizen Advice should be able to help. Maybe your post grad school too? They might have had to deal with this before. Mine for example are well aware of the state of the local council and gave me stacks of my exemption form because they knew the first one would be ignored, and the second wouldn't ever get sent back etc. Not that it mattered, even when they did accept the form and log it I got sent a court summons eventually for not paying it (on a day I was meant to have work presented at a conference no less!).
I can't think what other evidence they would need aside from your exemption and official course dates. It sounds like they're just being clueless in regards to post grad student status. Did you get an official reason as to why it was rejected the second time?
I wouldn't go in an register for jobseekers because as Jepsonclough says if you're already working part-time you shouldn't be able to. Best case scenario they won't let you and you waste a day, worst they'll assume you're attempting to defraud them.
Are you keeping a note of dates/times of all correspondance and with whom? If the faffing about does cause a delay in your partner's claim then if you need to make a complaint later it will help (especially if you end up with any unexpected costs and charges).
