There are no rules regarding pocket placement. Some of these choices reflect styling from the 1950's/60's which is when a lot of these guys were being trained. You stick with what you learn when you were learning. See this on lapel shapes from Naples too.

Looked at your pictures again, the size is wrong for you. Try another brand or get this and have the body trimmed down. I advise against doing that but do it if you want to.
Regardless of the sales person's opinion, this suit jacket is too large. It would be difficult to alter and unnecessary  to do so if you only need to size down. Did they offer you a smaller size to try on?   How does the trouser waist fit?
Doesn't have to be that way
It bugs me to see shirt, tie or top of the trouser waistband  so I fit and shape the fronts to avoid this. Not every tailor or fitter thinks it is an issue. If you don't want to see this, ask for an adjustment at the fittings. Not much you can do to change the jacket at this point.  Have never had a client ask to see the tie, shirt or waistband when the jacket is buttoned but they do appreciate having the fronts cover these points. The fronts are still shaped with open...
Wish I had clients who accepted pulling at the waist button   If this jacket were balanced differently the fronts wouldn't open as much when unbuttoned. This contributes to the pulling and the button looks like it needs to be moved. Probably off from adjusting for the low shoulder.   What I hear the OP saying is current suits have inherent flaws that are normal  for a "modern suit". This just isn't so or shouldn't be an acceptable paradigm. 
That is not stitching it is a seam. It only needs to be pressed. There isn't anything wrong in that picture
The balance is off by a mile. They need to shorten the back to lift it off your hips. This will clean up the wrinkles in the lower back. Do not understand what you mean by stitching on the arms
There isn't much difference in the shoulder width going one size down. Sometimes only 1/4". These shoulders are too wide. You require at least one size smaller in this cut. If you alter the body of this suit the result will make the shoulders look larger in proportion to the trimmer body.
