Knox warranty void has been discussed for a long time but I can't find consistent results on what it actually means.

(where I live there is a law that hardware warranty ...
On Nexus devices, at least: CF Auto-Root works by unlocking the device's boot loader via fastboot (if it isn't already unlocked), then sending the device a custom boot image (kernel and ramdisk) that it should run instead of booting from the built-in system or recovery partition.

OK, so for question #1 Try to get into recovery mode and then wipe cache partition and dalvik cache - that should help.

You can always try the manual method using fastboot/ Odin to flash a custom recovery,eg, CWM,TWRP and then flash a SuperSU zip from that custom recovery. Or you could try Kingroot. I hear it's good upto 5.0 . And, once you are rooted, you can always Odin back to stock to claim warranty unless you burnt a chip somehow.
I would say no. If you want to completely copy app from phone to another storage you need usually root. And for making app as a system app, you need unfortunately root as well.
Xposed is basically the only way. You could try changing the apps permissions, see if that works. Otherwise, you may need a serious tinker to get Xposed working.
You can use it as wifi for all family members, buy a sim with good data plan and use it in broken phone and plug it in for charging and turn its wifi hot spot which can be used by other family member.
