3 if you go the nut plate version and there is a void where the nuts and washers were should that be fill with something like RTV to fill the void and anchor the nut plate
4 if you use the nut plate should you stop torquing when the bolt starts to embed in the weight
Nutplate - 10-32 Thread, Self-Locking Nutplate, Two Lug, Low Height, Cadmium Plated Carbon Steel, 450°,, With Dry-Film Lube, Plain Rivet Holes
You will notice that the AN509-10R16 screw is difficult to thread in it, that is because it is self-locking. some people think it is a bad nutplate and they run a tap through it, but then it is not self-lucking anymore. be very careful with that. Call me if you like. Good luck.
