Most of these products are simple machines marketed to be fancy...and the price exorbitant.
I prefer higher volume, so I tend towards 4-6 movements at 3-4 sets each...particularly for the larger musculature. But, that's what I've found works for me via trial and error. You should do the...
I do both, but emphasize weighted work. BW exercises can only do so much when you've been lifting for years and years...
That is completely normal - building the upper body will accentuate the V-shape.
Are they warmup sets? It would help if you can link or post the program.
Consistency is pretty important - of you never make all of your days, consider changing your routine to something more feasible.
I strongly prefer DB, but incorporate BB work, particularly with chest movements. DB has the advantage of being unilateral with multiple planes of possible movement, thereby often working supporting...
Have you diagnosed the cause of the pain?

This is good advice, particularly for someone your age OP.

My lifting sessions are usually 1-1.5 hours; however, it's fairly high volume (24+ sets most days).
I don't count rest intervals - I continue when I'm ready. After years of lifting, this is usually a 1-1.5 minutes between isolation style work, and up to five minutes between heavy compounds.
You should not be locking the elbows with force. This results in injury, such as that you are experiencing...
In the context of weightlifting, not really. For CV health, sure.
I rarely lockout on movements.
