What local options are you looking for?
Ideally child themes do not update on regular basis. Updates are frequent for parent theme (Genesis Framework Theme). However, if you are concerned about child theme updates – you can always use custom css method.
Note: The default executive pro theme does use Google Font named “Open Sans” – http://demo.studiopress.com/executive/
To check if theme using Google Font:
You can install this Google Chrome extension – https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/whatfont/jabopobgcpjmedljpbcaablpmlmfcogm?hl=en
After install, just point over any text and it will tell you name of the font being used.
If privacy is too much of concern, you can use specific fonts served from your own server via download on each user session.

You can try this plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-featured-content-widget/
As such Genesis Featured Widget Amplified still works fine.
Looks like you are starting to explore world of page builder in Genesis ecosystem. I would recommend:
1. Page builder by Site Origin – it’s free and it leaves really neat code. https://wordpress.org/plugins/siteorigin-panels/
2. Beaver Builder – For whole hog of features. It’s paid solution – https://www.wpbeaverbuilder.com/
Both works fine on Genesis themes.
