comment Which of the foll. powershell script is correct way to install a timer job into SharePoint?
Normally timer job based solutions (provided they don't have Web Parts) are candidate for globally deployed solutions.

Check the account you're using for debugging has access in the remote server? Also check the URL reference to the web service

comment custom master page / branding from _layouts instead of provisioning feature
You could go on and bend the rules and best practices. You can even go on and develop a solution which fulfills your customers but that doesn't mean you developed the long lasting and sustainable solutions. SharePoint is an amazing product and one might be fooling itself if he/she thinks it's otherway around. SharePoint is here to stay and generate money for you. That's the very reason you invested in SharePoint. But if you think SharePoint is awful then get your hands-off it and invest in wordpress or a reputable SharePoint institute - I take my leave

Think about it: you will NOT get any versioning or approval workflows for the master page, and files deployed to LAYOUTS folder will be available to everywhere in SharePoint farm including central admin, SharePoint Service Provider and what not!

comment custom master page / branding from _layouts instead of provisioning feature
Let's take an example, When a site is created so SharePoint doesn’t really copy the master pages like V4.master/Oslo.master into a new database table or directory. These files exist only once on each of the front end web servers and SharePoint just reference them to create a new site. The result is that site appears to have it’s own pages but in reality they are shared across all sites that use that site definition. This technique is called ghosting and improves performance as SharePoint and you can't achieve the same while deploying your master page into the layouts folder.

I guess you would be fine with out of the box web services. Try accessing SOAP services to connect lists residing in other farm. server_name/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx

You can also use PowerShell if you intend to do it for all the site collections within a web application (provided feature has deployed the master page) gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Set-custom-pages-to-all-d6d66dc5
