1) One common approach is to use Pages (not Posts) for all the pages you propose (which you seem to have done). Pages do not require categories.

Then in Settings, you tell WordPress to use About (or some other Page) as your Home page. In the Sidebar, you could change the heading from Pages to some other, more descriptive name.

2) I see only two sizes: the headings (Pages, Archives, etc.) and the lists of titles (About, Membership, Mission, etc.). The differences relate to headings vs topics.

3) Category is something like a key word, or, literally, a category: fruit, vegetables, meat, whatever. I am tired and not feeling very creative about this, but you can comment out anything you like in the sidebar.php, including the headings.

4) Do you want people to be able to find the Mission_Old? If so, you need to accommodate it somehow, but maybe only by a link from another page.

I need to think a bit about this. I am trying to do what you are, but right this minute cannot figure out the best approach.
