We seek forgiveness for every believer in Allah, the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS). Muslims friends who were born in non Shia families and have high regards for Ahlul Bayt need our prayers to understand the real position of Ahlul Bayt in Islam as the divine leaders after the Prophet (SAWA).

Wassalam.

No doubt that performing Qaza prayers is obligatory and more important than recommended prayers. The reward for Qaza prayers is more than recommended prayers.

Yes of course. There are authentic evidence in both Sunni and Shia books. You can find many Hadeeths in this regard in Wasaa'il al-Shia.V. 4, page 220. باب جواز الجمع بين الصلاتين دون عذر 
You can also find many Hadeeths in Saheeh Muslim, Baab al-Jam' Bayn al-Salatain. باب الجمع بين الصلاتين

As he performs his obligatory Prayers in any case even if you don't remind him, and feels annoyed when you remind him about not to delay it, you should avoid annoying him. You may gently mention to him what the Prophet and Ahlul Bayt (AS) said about the great reward of praying on time, but avoid making him feel insulted.

Wassalam.

This is untrue.

Infallible never prays behind a sinner. Such narrations are fabricated even if you find them in a book compiled by a Shia author. This narration is mentioned in Nawaadir Al-Raawandi, page 30 but it has no value nor any authenticity.

It is highly recommended for both men and women to recite Adhan and Iqamah, especially if they are praying on their own, and not in jama'ah. 

Of course, the difference is that a female should recite in a low voice in the presence of a non-mahram. As for performing jama'ah prayers, of course a female can do loud Adhan and a female can lead jama'ah prayers if they are all women. 

And Allah knows best

We do not need to keep repeating the intention (Niyyat) as far as we still remember what we are intending to perform. If we forget what want to perform, then we need to remember the Niyyat again.

'Niyyat is nothing more than to know what you are going to perform, and it is for the sake of Allah. We do not need to say anything to reflect our intention.

Wassalam.

If you do not have a physical injury or a handicap that would prevent you from observing the correct form of prayer, which is standing up, then you are not allowed to pray sitting down. 

Whatever the environment may be, you must be able to take breaks, in which you can find an empty space to pray in. If the situation is very bad, then you must think of leaving that toxic environment so you are able to express your religious freedom and do you wajibaat in the correct form.
