I like the EZ sewn bind off too but the long tail of yarn that you would need to work with makes that difficult. Icelandic bind off looks neat and here are a few more...

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
I think you've set a record for posing a question and answering it yourself. It's a great looking sweater and I'm glad you managed an approximation of the stitch used.

It does look like the head is smaller than the pattern shows but it's still very cute.

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
The smaller needles are worth a try. You can even continue the current swatch by marking the point where you switched needles with a few purl sts and continuing to knit.

Yes, the lifeline is a very good idea. Mark the RS in case that's a problem and keep up the decs every RS row and you'll be fine.

If you can zoom in, it looks like about 11 ridges of decs. I'd say, keep decreasing 2 sts per RS row. Do 11 dec rows, 22 rows total.

Work sts as they appear means that if the next stitch on your needle looks like a knit V, knit it and if it looks like a purl bump, purl it. Yarn overs are usually treated by purling into them unless...

The RS is very like honeycomb brioche which you've probably tried but of course, it doesn't give a ribbed WS. It's very intriguing but I haven't come across it.
