You're close to right except you probably wouldn't touch that CB seam. That would cause the vents to invert unless the seat of the jacket is simply way too large for your own. Go to the tailor's tutorials and find the thread on jacket waist suppression. It could be as simple as how you've drawn the green arrow or it could be a little more intense requiring a little skirt reduction at the front through the underseam that is intersected by the pocket.
 Def keep the 48R. Have the collar roll removed ( it is posture related). The jacket would require more front suppression so it doesn't pull around your sides. This is more involved than the normal sideseam adjustment. See the tailor's tutorials and look for the thread on jacket waist suppression. See the example where the front part only gets sucked in.With the pants, it's harder to tell because you had no pics for us to see but it's probably releasing the back part of...
We can't tell from the selfie.
They look to be too wide in the shoulders (esp the linen). Shoulders may not be sloped enough nor are they cut correctly---especially for the lower right shoulder. The prominent blades are really hard to get around and to some degree, you may always experience distortion in the back from them. Also, the back balance appears to be too long and not correctly adjusted for the swayback/forward hips. The jackets are falling down in the back and hitting your hips. Lots of work...
armhole distortion usually caused by tightness over the blades pulling at the armhole causing it to collapse. This creates excess vertical length at the sleeve cap.
This question is a little confusing...please clarify.
If it's RTW, the chest is a tad small and it's pulling fabric where the sleeves are attached. So, the fit of the chest is not good if it causes that. You just happen to like how close it is.
It's a little too hard to tell. Better pics are needed.
In case anyone is reading this who doesn't have a super slim physique...the suit I'm wearing above is tailored for my 47" chest, 39" waist, 42" hips. At 6'2" 220 lbs, I'm definitely not a great candidate for "slim fit" but it can be done.
Something a little different. Super-flecked light grey donegal tweed. Red gingham microcheck shirt. Green base, tan and blue polka dotted tie. Yellow, green, red silk square. Vintage globe lapel pin. Tan double monks.   First time iGenting for me...   You'll usually find me in a sewing room somewhere..
