The "side-dropdown" is called a jumplist. Look for the "Enable jumplists" setting in the Main Menu tab.

No, Classic Shell must be installed by admin for all users. However pretty much each feature can be disabled per user.

The buttons are intended to be icon-only, so they are always the same size. That's why the label is moved to the tooltip.

The highlight just means there is a new program.
If right-click doesn't work in other places, maybe it is the mouse?

That would indicate there was some sort of update. The green highlight is because there is a new version of some app.
You can right-click on the green items and select "remove highlight".

The right click problem is weird. Have you tried rebooting? Or holding down Shift while clicking?

Classic Shell uses the undocumented interfaces IDestinationList and IAutomaticDestinationList. Keep in mind that the GUIDs for those interfaces are different depending on the version of Windows, as well as the interfaces themselves may be different.

No, I mean the way you would hibernate if Classic Shell was not installed.
For example you can close all programs, click on the Desktop and press Alt+F4. This will show a dialog box with options to shut down. Hibernate should be one of them.

The ClassicStartMenu.exe process doesn't do much. It mostly watches Explorer to restart so it can re-add the start button.
There have been no other reports about touchpad problems.
I would recommend to temporarily uninstall Classic Shell for a few days to see if the problem is truly gone.

The icon size can be changed from the Menu Look tab.
The text size can be changed only if the skin allows it. Not many do.
You can change the size of the entire menu by tweaking the DPI setting in the Menu Look tab.

The Windows 7 style menu doesn't scroll the pinned items. The Classic styles do.
