My background has been radio production for over 12 yrs.
Reading through the posts I have a similar approach as Inner Light on almost every point. (I don't eliminate every breath but most of them and as always, it all depends)

With ssssssss I usually control them with a combination of Dynamic EQ followed by gentle or surgical EQ followed by gentle DeEss followed by Phoenix. The whole time doing this I am focused on the full range of the voice. One of my pet peeves is hearing a DeEsser.

In terms of ducking, It's quicker and easier for me to just volume automate. I've also found I can have more control over each instance of GR instead of dealing with a thresholds, attacks and releases.
