comment Download and delete documents using Powershell
The scheduling and management (enable/disabling) for Timer Jobs can easily be set up in a secure environment within Central Administration. With your business case for development of custom code, I'd suggest presenting the risk of having the entire SharePoint configuration username and password stored in a plain text file against having it locked away within the (tried and tested) security of SharePoint Central Administration.

comment How do I hyperlink columns in a List View Web Part without SharePoint Designer?
Create a new web part page and display a LVWP from your list and edit that LVWP, so you're not touching actively-used production web parts.

comment sharepoint 2010 : Download Data as Excel reports
Just tested this solution out in my SPS2010 VM, works well (Got a list, Item Ribbon Tab, Export to Excel). You will have to set the Data Connection to refresh data when reloading. In Excel, in the Data Tab, click Connections in the Connections Section, click Properties when owssrv[1] is selected, and check "Refresh Data when opening the file".

comment How do I hyperlink columns in a List View Web Part without SharePoint Designer?
Could try Exporting the LVWP, which downloads a .webpart file. Problem is, it's XML-encoded the XSLT, so you'd need to put it through a decoder like this: opinionatedgeek.com/dotnet/tools/htmlencode/Decode.aspx Remembering to re-encode before you put back into the .webpart file and re-uploading. A very process, however.

revised Is there a way to tell if an IIS site is connected to SharePoint?
Unsure if running web apps in accounts other than Network Service is a best practice (other than "just a good idea")

comment Branding SharePoint 2010 After the Fact
As for the Features bit, you want to look at deploying branding via a Feature - think it's a commonly used method, as it's easier on us developers (it's just another Feature to active, but it deploys a masterpage and makes things look pretty).

comment Branding SharePoint 2010 After the Fact
Yep, sounds like a typical scenario. It sounds like you're making a proof of concept to show what it's capable of. Careful with these situations, as your proof of concept could very quickly be adopted as the mainstream solution, and there is the possibility your environment will struggle to handle the load (depending on your organisation size). Ensure the VP understands it's a proof of concept, and the whole use of SharePoint be revisited after a set time, in order to properly plan your deployment.
