Some players might prefer small grips. If they feel it gives them more spin, maybe it does.

Adding mass at either location will increase dynamic stiffness. But adding mass at 9" will increase dynamic stiffness much more than adding mass at 7".

I think increasing the sweetspot is always a good thing. But I don't think O-ports of exo-ports make much difference in sweetspot size - instead they just increase the effective size of the stringbed. I string tighter to compensate.

If you want, sure. I prefer extra mass spread out around the entire upper half of the hoop.

MgR/I has nothing to do with strength or fast twitch fibers.

I'm not sure you should be advising people there is an optimal mgr/i per height. I think you should advise everyone to find their own personal mgr/i.
I do advise people to find their own personal optimum MgR/I value. I refer again to this post:
