1 I have often used my old Celestions is small rooms. A 12 inch driver with a 12 inch ABR. 24 inches of cone. IMHO bigger speakers dominate a room, controlling it more than smaller ones.
2 Bass developing and modal support or lack of it are different things. See 1.
3 Fibre or Foam treatment, if thick enough, does not necessarily sound dull. In fact the opposite frequently happens.
4 Correct, you can't make such comparisons.
5 You can place rear ported speakers where you like. If the rear port becomes loaded slightly differently due to proximity to a wall or corner, this may be a good thing, or not. You can even plug the rear port to diminish LF.
