Cuts easily with a bandsaw.

3/4 thick will get you same height as angle in floor.

I plan to run wiring and static/pitot/AOA lines along the left side from the spar forward to a convenient place and then up into the instrument panel. Do any carpet systems allow for a channel in the foam to act as a sort-of conduit?

The whole assembly is glued together. Bottom skin bonded to the core, top skin bonded to the core. The glue used is often a thermoplastic adhesive, so if it gets very hot (don't know how hot it needs) it could debond.

I used 1/8 Baltic Plywood with a few 3/4 square Balsa blocks spaced under the foot stress areas. The Plywood was cut to shape and fit tightly, a small cord on the rear end allows the boards to be lifted out.

Default Aluminumized fiberglass

I use thermal heat barrier. Thin fiberglass with aluminum sheeting. It is peel and stick, cuts with scissors and easy to keep clean. 40$ on Amazon.comes in various sizes.
