Human beings have their own ways to express their feelings of grief and sadness as well to express their feelings of happiness. Islam allows different ways of expression of feelings as far as it does not contradict a clear ruling of Islam. No one can express his happiness by dancing, simply because dancing is forbidden in Islam. No one can express his sadness by drinking beer or alcohol, simply because drinking alcohol or beer is forbidden in Islam.

People whom you mentioned in your question are expressing their feelings of grief by their own way which does not contradict with any Islamic clear rule, and does not have bad effect on the image of Islam.

Allah (SWT) grants people the reward according to their intentions. These people are observing and remembering the tragedy of Karbala. May Allah (SWT) grant them reward according to their intentions.

Wassalam.

You will not be able to do both wudhu' and ghusl simultaneously and at once. 

So, you can either do wudhu' before ghusl, or after ghusl. 

When you wipe your head during wudhu', you can use four fingers, or three fingers. Both cases are fine.

And Allah knows best.

Yes, it is permissible to get a hair transplant, as the hair will become a part of the body, and it will not create a barrier or an obstacle to prevent water from getting to your skin while doing wudhu'/ghusl. 

The problem could be if the hair does not grow, and whether this would become an obstacle in ghusl and wudhu' being valid. For this case you must refer to your Marja' taqleed.

And Allah knows best.

Long hair should not not extend more than the area of wiping. If it goes more than the area of wiping, you will be then not wiping on the area required to be wiped, that is why you need to part and wipe over the area itself and not in another area of the head where the long hair reaches.

Yes, in ghusl, water must reach all parts of the body, but not that you have to scrub it in. Just by allowing water to flow over it would be enough, with some assistance with your hands to make sure its completely reached the parts. 

Ears are also included, like everywhere else. But, of course not the inside of the ear, or the inside of the nose. Just outer parts of the body. 

And Allah knows best.

There would not be any problem in which hairstyle you choose, or shaving parts of your head, as long as it is something acceptable and befitting for a mu'min. It should not be something that stands our as Islamically inappropriate, or not acceptable by religious circles, or would bring about criticism from others. 

Fashion yourself in a way that is nice and elegant, but also befitting for a pious religious person, and always making sure it is appropriate so you do not subject yourself to negative criticism.

With prayers for your success.

If you are a man and your Hajj is the first Hajj, you must shave your head on the day of Eidul Adhha as one of the obligatory acts of Haj according to most of the scholars.

If your Hajj is not the first Hajj, it will be highly recommended to shave your head.

Shaving the head is not permissible for women.
