Unless your chest measurement is 36 or under or you're going for an early 1960s look, I'd look for slightly wider ones. Lapels that narrow don't look balanced and proportionate on a wider chest.
That's an error. It shouldn't even touch the pocket bag.
Morning dress trousers have had a surprising amount of variation (mostly monochrome, though) in them, with it being possible to even wear plain grey flannels or checked trousers.  I'd say that if the pants are a thicker, stiffer material that holds a sharp crease, they should be fine even though they're a tonal grey.
You will not look dated.  Don't bother getting the trousers tapered, moving the ribbon on the seam is more hassle than it's worth and the heavier fabric will drape really well.
I really should have provided pictures earlier.  Shirts 1 and 3 are from Luxire, shirt 2 is an OTR shirt. Basically, make sure the arms are attached so they naturally lay horizontally like this: And not at an angle like this: Alternatively, you may opt for a bi-swing back, though it only works on heavier fabrics and narrow cuts:
Basically, if you laid the shirt flat, you should be able to stick a long pole or a broom handle through one sleeve and out the other without the shoulders crumpling.
I believe that strip of leather/that style is called a tarsal strap, but I could be mistaken.
