    Where am I losing power?

    You're not losing power. With that effort, expect 80 mph first serves at best. Compare to any pro serve.

    ATP serve net clearance?

    But still allow for 12" clearance. A slower 2nd serve might clear by as much as 2', and still spin in.

    The "trick" to low biting slices

    Stand on your baseline. Drop feed yourself a low net clearance slice, less than 2 feet that LANDS within 4 feet of the opponent's baseline. THAT is a low biting slice.

    What do you think about this kitchen sink?

    Looks on the small side. Ours 31x19" and a bit tight for bigger pots and pans. If you ever entertain, yours looks tiny.

    After adding more knee bend, Forehand now going slightly long.

    Aim lower over the net. You and I are not good enough to claim we are grooved.

    Semi open stance against open stance

    Open really only works if the incoming ball reaches to your strikezone. Varying low sliders with loopy topspin forces you to go neutral, closed, and open.

    Moonball serves.

    Once they see their serves returned into a corner to start a retrieving point while serving, they will rethink. If they keep winning, they won't change. Let them watch pro tennis.

    Flat feet - cushioned vs support/orthotics?

    Both. Soft for cushion and hard for actual support. Too bad the support part goes away after 3 weeks.

    Practice more. No newbie has accuracy. And no pro player, either, when he's facing a better player.

    Can you adapt to a new/different racket?

    How can anyone short of Del Po have too much power? Fed, Nadal, and Djokovic wish they had more power. Are you as powerful as them?
