1. How many algs would it take to make a method where you put a cross piece in flipped and finish f2l and then flip that edge while orienting and permuting the ll edges?

2. that is interesting, but isnt that very similar to zz or zb or whatever that is?

GHII is not very good compared to the AV, although you may need to put some work into the AV by modding the corners to decrease lock-ups and increase corner cutting.
What do you mean by a "crispy Cube?"

Nope, in ZZ and Petrus the edges are preoriented before you finish F2L. I'm no smarty pants about ZZ but I'm pretty sure you just solve the whole layer in one algorithm.

Cubes with that clicky but nice type of clicky feeling.

There are only 2 orientation cases for the LL edges in that case. It would be about 30 I think.

Edit: I don't think there would be a PLL parity. So with the 5 edge PLL cases, that's 10 for each, x4 for rotations, so 40. But you can take some away, 3 of the cases can be U2'd, so that takes away 6. So 34 including mirrors? 2 Cases can also be U/U' 'd, so 6 less to make 28. I'm probably wrong.

Edit2: 22 cases I think now. I only counted the 2 U/U' cases for one orientation case.

7. I just adjusted the tension on my F-II and now the center caps keep falling out... any advice?

Put paper in them.

Cut out a piece of paper slightly bigger than the cap, and when you put the cap back in, put the paper under it in a way to keep the cap wedged in.
