Removing the shoulder pad will add to the divot in the sleeve and won't improve the fit, unless you have very square shoulders. The jacket is tight and distorting the armhole and that puts stress on the sleeve cap creating the divot. Sleeve cap needs to be shorter and the sleeve made wider
Best to buy jackets knowing your chest size than by the point to point shoulder width. The shoulder width can vary by shoulder slope or stylistic choices. Very square shoulders would measure less than sloping shoulders as the arc of the slope is longer than the straighter line of square shoulders.  Chest size can vary according to how much ease/drape is in the pattern.
Heat removes marks made by wax chalk but leaves a dark line where the chalk line was. You can remove the dark line by scratching in the direction of the warp with your finger nail.   If the residue is from clay chalk, apply a bit of water and brush the mark or use a cloth to rub it out. I like these clay chalk lines on my own clothes for this reason but wouldn't suggest to a client that he should adopt this point of view

Don't see any benefit of you trying MTM as you still have all the fit issues of a RTW garment. Time and money are better spent on a MTM garment that will adjust and adopt the suit to your posture and fitting issues.The adjustments needed on the suit are better made at the cutting stage and nearly impossible to correct as a post construction adjustment. Also necessary is an experienced fitter who can diagnose what you need and is competent to know what degree of adjustments...
Depends on the weave and quality of the linen. You may see the old seam line but not as bad as cotton.
This is officially my favorite post.
The line of your shoulder isn't too square to cause problems. The issue is your very prominent shoulder blade on the left side. This requires more attention when making the left shoulder to work in more fullness to cover the blade. The right shoulder is low but in a different way. You are not only low at the shoulder point  (where the shoulder meets sleeve) you are low at the neck point as well. Shoulder needs to be adjusted at the neck. What you really need is more length...
[[SPOILER]]   They tried too hard but didn't make the correct adjustments and the result is the suit is over fitted and thus poorly fitted. You do have a low right shoulder but the counter part to this is a prominent left shoulder blade. In the first picture of the RTW jacket there isn't any visible breaking wrinkles relating to the low shoulder. The left shoulder needs an adjustment for the larger prominent blade and the right side adjusted for the low shoulder The  chest...
