Do you have a forward leaning neck?

As others have said, photos will help members make recommendations. But really, just send fit questions and photos directly to Luxire. Their team will know what adjustments to make to your shirt pattern.
@JezeC , I have the exact same issue on my Luxire shirts. Luxire recommended making an adjustment for a forward neck posture. I have not tried it yet to see if this will work.

New Shirt. Adjust shoulder slopes again? 

I asked for them to "adjust pattern for square shoulders" to eliminate this, after seeing a graphic on another forum sponsor's website. This decreases the slope.

I believe (based on the same article) that the lines would run from near the collar points toward the armpits if you required more slope.

Has anyone waited over two months for a non-special order with an existing pattern (i.e. standard options in the order form and one of the fabrics listed in the website)?

2 months is the most I've ever waited. 6 weeks seems to be the average for trousers. You can always ask Luxire for an update, they're very helpful.

6 weeks for trousers - Was that for a new or existing pattern and was the fabric in stock?

Existing pattern (just different insteam) and the fabric was probably not in stock.

It's not been 2 months yet, 7.5 weeks so far. I'm going on holidays on the 31st for two weeks so I was wondering if my trousers wouldn't be here before that.

I still haven't gotten my pre-summer linen sale shirt or pants.

Just emailed them about a trouser order I placed in late March for which I'm still awaiting shipping confirmation. It was for an existing pattern, with small tweak. The last couple orders were about 4 weeks, but I realize I may have been lucky in that regard, and 6 weeks may be the norm.

If I want a military hem, how do I specify that? I guess since the inseam is located mid-way from front to back, I can give an inseam measurement as usual? And then +/- for the front and back in the notes?.

Also, I'm planning to order the Sky Blue Summer Chambray with NOBD II. Can anyone recommend an appropriate lining/fusing option for that combo?

That sounds reasonable to me. I would also tell them that you want a military hem so they understand what you're trying to accomplish.

Oh, one other question. Can I just call out the "NOBD II collar", or do I need to reference the order number from the spreadsheet?

I don't have any experience with the Sky Blue Summer Chambray specifically, but with my NOBD II collars I generally ask for a medium weight, unfused lining. I find this is just right to allow for the collar to maintain it's shape throughout the day.
