Sorry, nothing funny here. I want to repro the exact conditions as you and want to remove all ambiguity.

What are your start button settings?

Do you have multiple monitors? If so, what are their resolutions? Do you have the taskbar on them?

My guess would be you added the button to the toolbar for copying or moving files. But I may be wrong.

Either way, the toolbar just gives you access to the features that are already built into Explorer. Classic Shell does not implement the copy operation itself.

The spacing depends on the selected skin and other factors - like the DPI you use or if you have a touch screen.
If you want to customize that you may have to edit the skin file and increase the padding.

All of the start menu functionality runs inside the Explorer.exe process. The ClassicStartMenu.exe process is not important for performance. You can even kill it and the menu will still work.

You can try changing the folder properties to make it "hidden". Keep in mind that many of the system folders exist in pairs, one for all users and one for the current user. So there may be two folders you need to update.

Look for the setting "Delay multiplier for split buttons". Set it to some rather large number, like 10000. This will make the delay 100 longer than the normal hover delay, so about half minute. It will effectively disable the hover behavior.

It is not possible to display the start screen inside another window. It is using a completely different and incompatible technology.
Start8 simply finds the main window of the menu and resizes it. It doesn't mix two menus in a single UI. Besides, that trick only worked for Windows 8.
