No, editing the child theme’s functions.php is the normal process. Genesis gets upgraded.
Child themes RARELY do and you are expected to patch those updates in or keep track of your changes.
Note this is standard practise in WordPress – not specific to Genesis or Studiopress. Just child theming in general.
Font size in controlled in the style.css file of every theme. That is why it is not mentioned in the setup. It is also considered customization.
I also find these things with Firebug. It’s an invaluable tool for looking at the HTML source of your site as well as the css. It will even let you test changes before making them live.

Upload the bigger images.
Wordpress looks at registered image sizes and makes new copies of the images at those smaller sizes, so it is not just displaying a huge image at a smaller dimension.
This is just in general how images work in WP.
We already have a bug ticket filed.
Edited to add: you can still access the general help desk without being a member. We are aware of the issue and as Travis reported over at Stack Exchange, are working with core on a fix.

Have you asked your webhost to help restore a backup?
Anything saved in a setting in the admin area is saved in the *database* – not in the file system.
If you cannot get the database properly restored, then you’ll have to start from where it left off.
We really can’t do anything in the help desk to help with that part.
I don’t see anything on how to set up the home page to look like the demo. I started by making it a full-width (it looks like that in the demo, no?), but I had trouble with padding issues (I have another post in the forum about that). Seems I have to adjust the CSS, so I skipped the home page and moved on for now.
Dragging the widgets to the areas specified is exactly how to set up the home page. No, you do not make a page full width. You do not even make a separate page.
Oh and if you did mean for Agentpress the old videos for 1.0 have completely different setup, different widget areas, a different slider, different plugins and a whole different way of doing the listings. So.
The 2.0 version of a theme is a completely new theme. Consider it a different theme that happens to have the same name.
Whenever we switched to 2.0 version of themes, I would leave them up at the bottom of the page for anyone who had the 1.0 version. We found that people would skip over all the text and go straight to the video then wonder why their screen was different.
