3) Hovercraft and Inflation: two possibilities:
 A) Add "This card not affected by Inflation" in small print at the bottom.
 B) Spell out *all* the numerals, not just '3'.
How about adding one extra rule: "8 or more: something something something" -> No problem with Inflation.
Or changing "7" to "7 or more" perhaps?

I don't see the problem.  If you end up with more than eight, it doesn't do anything.  What's the problem? There are a lot of situations where the card you play has no effect.

7) The Knights Who Say "Ni!":  Wonderful!  It would be even better if it were neutralized if a card with "It" is on the table -- like "Get On With It".
But as you know, at that point of the film, they are no longer the Knights who say "Ni!" ...

And that creates an opportunity for another creeper (The Knights Who 'Til Recently Said "Ni").
