It's not that difficult to use.  Be gentle and have a little common sense and you'll be fine.    Regarding your pH comment: I'm a scientist, and pH usually refers to how basic or acid a solution is, therefore an actual leather item (shoe, for example) would not have a designated pH.  Atleast, there would be no way to measure it.    Now, applying products to the shoe that are a neutral pH (around 7.0) would make sense for the care of the shoe. 
I have not, but my experience with Renomat is that it is magic. :)
Why not 6.5E?
  I'm not really seeing a problem here, except for that heel thing.  If you can live with that, I say keep em and enjoy.  I think they look pretty good.
Renovateur isn't magic in a bottle, however, Renomat IS actually magic.
I assume it would follow the same rules that Paul Grangaard is giving the SF community.  Probably the normal standard shell price - $595.  That isn't bad for a custom shoe.
I'm not in any position to do a custom AE shoe right now, but If I could I would definitely do a simple change.  I'd do a Leeds shoe on the 7 last (or maybe 5 last) in burgundy shell.  It's just a small change, but I think it would be a great looking shoe.     Alden fans always jump at the chance of getting things like the indy boot on the Plaza instead of TruBalance last.  Based on that, I think the altered Leeds would be a welcome addition to my collection. 
What last is the Amok on?  Sorry if this was covered.  Is it the 1 last?
  For your reference, I am an 9.5E in the 5 and the 7 last.  The length is very good in both, the 7 is just a touch more generous in the ball of the foot, which I actually prefer (the 5 last is pretty snug).  I wear a 10D in the 1 last, but i'm sure a 9.5E would fit in that last as well.
Not a bad deal?!?!  That's an amazing deal.  Are you leaning any direction for what you may want to have made?
