Those measurements are all accurate. There is a noticeable size
difference between the Plaincards I have and the Fluxx 3.0 deck
I have.

For printing custom Fluxx cards, I'd either run Blanxx through
the printer on a carrier sheet, or use the sticker method. Avery
has full-sheet clear clear labels now, which should be handy for
adding text to a Blanxx card.

Plaincards aren't really useful for adding cards to an existing
game. They're mostly sueful for entire custom decks.

I mostly just use my Canon inkjet, which has a fairly straight
paper path, so I can't really say. I guess I could run a test
with the laser printer that has a 180 degree bend in the path
and see what happens...
