That is a great way to run the light from this controller. I hate common grounds and I bet you do to. I'm glad JeffKroll could help you out.

I want to see the traces. Why would they have all those pads, unless a trace went to them. It's possibly wired way differently then laid out on board. Probably a cost thing.

I am not familiar with the Finnex power supplies. This would need to go between the DC power supply and the leds. One channel can be used for the effects you mention.
