1. Is it worth it and how difficult is it to repaint the console frame and channel plates? I want the paint to match the original or not do it at all. I can deal with paint on top, I can prepare all the templates myself (i'm a graphic designer by trade).
Studer modules have multilayer construction, you should be able to remove the top powdercoated and silkscreened panel (glued, be careful to not bend it)
Don't know the technic to remove powdecoating (chemical ?) but then it's "easy" to find someone that can powdercoat and silkscreen or UV print on the clean panel.

The RAL for 9xx series should be easy to find, especially for a graphic designer
Font is probably Helvetica

Studer probably use Elma or Sifam for the 9xx, there is chance knob and caps are still manufactured. Just have a search at both company catalogue.

Best
