1. Then, why not put your customizations in a custom LaTeX class (based
on an existing one)?  Currently, you have a package/class mix (see
below).  See clsguide.pdf in your TeX distro for details about how to do
it (see e.g. section "Example: a newsletter class")

2. And no need to symlink it anywhere.  If you have it in e.g.
~/texmf/tex/latex/mystuff/myclass.cls, run mktexlsr (assuming you are on
TeXlive) and then just \usepackage{mypackage} or
\documentclass{myclass}.  It is only necessary to run mktexlsr again in
case of a change in the directory under ~/texmf, so e.g. new files or
filename changes, but not just updating the file itself.

For .sty, this ^^ should be \ProvidesPackage.  Again, see clsguide.pdf.

Probably a good idea.

This should be \LoadClass (or similar, like \LoadClassWithOptions) in
a class file.

Tsk, tsk.  What about \usepackage{parskip}?
