Yes, but I don't know if the edges are -totally, perfectly- seamless. I can't see any silicon though, so that's a plus.

I dunno, I might have to see some lily pipes on this bad-boy first.

Well considering how enthusiastically you've jumped into the hobby, I'm sure this new project is going to be impressive and (dare I say) deserving of maybe a thread all its own!?!

Great! I know a lot of people would appreciate it, since its a logical extension of the indoor hobby to an outdoor setting.

I think with those parameters, you probably could do 1/2 and 1/2 and be fine, but 2/3s would probably still be good without having to remineralize it.

There are no real perfect water parameters. Just adjust your water based on what you observe in your tank. If plants and fish like soft water, keep your water 0~3GH. The opposite is also true. It's all just a balancing game of putting in as much as your plants will consume and thrive under as well as keep your inhabitants happy.
