comment Does a malt “late addition” affect OG?
I've found 1.042 to be a better PPG for DME. But it's a small difference.

comment Increased Magnum hops in a Fat Tire Clone
I don't know that it's exactly linear, but it's close. Bascially you're converting the recipe hops into homebrew bitterness units (beertoolspro.com/wiki/Homebrew_Bitterness_Units) and then scaling as needed.

comment At what stage of the fermentation process is temperature control most important?
Good point. I haven't made a lager, so if someone else wants to answer this question with a focus on lagers, that'd be great.

comment What's the best UK malt to use instead of 'US 2-row pale ale malt'
Optic would have been my answer as well. A solid, flavorful grain but not as in-your-face as Maris Otter or Golden Promise.
