as to your other questions, most would be resolved by not reversing your boxes. there are a few valid reasons for reversing, but short of those few reasons, it's probably better to leave them alone. they don't reverse themselves in a tree trunk or barn wall, why should you do it with your supers?
I agree with all of the above. Don't bother reversing the boxes. It is also excess work you don't need. Regardless of where the queen is currently laying, she'll get around her brood nest just fine without you "helping".
