Is that bigger or smaller than my TD04? If it's a little smaller then don't expect high numbers, but don't "run away from it like the plague". If it's a little bigger, then no worries, my TD04 is already considered a little small.

I've seen decent numbers from crappier setups OP, you just need to take some time to figure it out. With what you have you'd just need to fab up an intercooler to make it work. Only issue I see is that the ebay manifold might crack, although you said you bought an FM3 unit? And of course the 10-12psi is a little high for a AFPR. You can either turn the boost down or get a MegaSquirt, but in that case you need bigger injectors for 10-12 psi.

You can always retract your for sale thread, or take out the bits you wanna save. From what you have, you're fine. I'd highly recommend a AFR gauge. You don't even have to plumb in the fuel pressure gauge, although once you have the AFR gauge, if you can't get it to read anything but lean, the pressure gauge can tell you if its the pump that's the problem.

So, install everything you have and:

0. AEM wideband - $240
1. turn your timing down to 8* - free
2. plumb the turbo over to the throttle body - free with some ingenuity.
3. drill/tap pan for oil drain - ~$50 (don't use hose barbs and rubber hose)
4. oil feed line - $25

After that, you can intercooler when you have the time/money, just keep a super close eye on afr. Put zip ties around the accordion section of the stock intake to keep it from ballooning.

After that, MS with bigger injectors, and you'll be set.

More or less, yes. It will tend to heat soak the intake more, and obviously that's not quite as safe and robbing you of horsepower. This is another reason you'll want the wideband, and yes that's the correct one you linked, good deal.

I'm not real sure about the oil feed, I don't think it's right.

Most of the questions you're asking could have easily been covered if you searched. Don't be lazy.
