Are you just trying to put a menu in the header right area? If so, you can do that by adding the custom menu widget to that area and selecting your menu in the widget.
If a dropdown will work, this tutorial might work for you to build your own: http://spruce.it/noise/two-category-dropdown-search-filter-in-wordpress/ I haven’t tried it, but I bookmarked it the other day because it looked promising.
No, you don’t delete this through your dashboard, you delete it through your host’s c-Panel. Do you know how to access files on your hosting account?
You can adjust input widths and styles within the advanced settings for each individual form element in Gravity forms. For a site-die change, I would adjust the CSS as I suggested above.

Here is what you have to do:
(1) create a new widget area — you can do this within functions.php or using the simple sidebars plugin.
(2) create the page where you want it to appear
(3) create a function hooking the widget area above that one page in your functions.php file using conditional tags
So, the question is, where are you in this process knowledge wise? Do you know how to do any of the above?
If you log into your hosting account, you can use the file viewer to delete what you just added from functions.php. That will restore your site. Make sure you don’t paste the opening php tag from the code snippet.
Bill Erickson has at tutorial on customizing avatars: http://www.billerickson.net/wordpress-custom-avatar/
You can adjust the background and fonts via CSS
You would need to add the home top widget above the loop via a function similar to how the after post ad section is added in your functions.php file (although without the conditional).
Are you familiar with creating functions?

As I stated, I have used woo commerce on multiple client sites with no problems either at integration or later with updates. These are two recent sites if you want to look at them: http://WWW.danceypantsdisco.com and http://WWW.hydrexphilathropic.org. they are small sites.
Most of my clients use PayPal to accept payments, the Hydrex site uses authorize.net to process payments on site. That did require us to purchase a WC extension. I can see how if you need to do a lot of specialized things it can get expensive to purchase all of the extensions, but if not you might be able to use just the free version. Several of the eCommerce sites I have built using this have required no extensions. When a site does require me to purcashe something then I pass that cost onto the client. Even if they have to spend $200 up front, it is still less expensive than many shopping cart solutions, many of which require monthly payments for the length of use. I can hardly complain about an initial fee up front for a plugin that is so valuable and which is going to make me/my client money.
You can do instant downloads/virtual products with the free version of WC.
What did you change it from 34px/3.4rem to 32/3.2? I would do something more dramatic than that and you will see a difference. Try changing it to 0 for example. Depending on how small you want the space to be, you should also change the spacing for the site container.
What browser are you using? You can right click and use “inspect element” to make trial changes directly in chrome. Firefox has the Firebug extension that will do the same thing.

If I understand you correctly and you are going to create individual posts for each testimonial, why not just categorize them and then set-up unique loop styling for that one category archive page? You could use the genesis grid code if you want them to appear multiple across.
Otherwise, Genesis Featured Widget Amplified is a great plugin, but you would need to create a widget area to add it into (possibly multiple if you want multiple columns) and add the widget area to the one specific page.
For the footer spacing issue, you can reduce both the margin and padding on the .footer-widgets and .site-container to eliminate that big gap. You may want to adjust the top and bottom separately instead of jointly as the CSS is currently set.
It looks like you solved your sidebar issue?

Yes! I use it on client sites all the time. There is a plugin “Genesis Connect for WooCommerce” which allows you to do things like specify sidebars and layouts, but WooCommerce will function just fine without it.
