The cut of those suits is not particularly flattering, I'd actually suggest putting on a 36R and seeing what it looks like. 5'8"/5'9" is really the cutoff when you could go either regular or short and it's more a personal preference thing, and how long your torso is. Based on the pics, it seems like either works for you -- the basic rule is the jacket should cover your butt and no more, and I think the R doesn't look too long based on that rule. The S is a little on the...
Hot, I like it.
Common sense says No. I'm on the slim side of 38R sizing (38" chest, 30" waist) and love RLBL b/c of its slim-fit.

Yeah, in NYC, that's perfectly fine. The key is developing a consistent aesthetic though. Obviously, if you're normally wearing t-shirts and shorts, you'll look like you're going "formal" with the blazer. If you're consistently button-down oxford with blazer or odd jacket, then that'll play just fine too, and soon people will realize that's your standard look.
