there is no problem in reading traditions from any book of ahadith without wudu. However it is recommended to be in state of wudu at all times or as much as you can. 

With prayers for your success.

The Wudhu is valid because the upper arm is away from the parts of washing in Wudhu, so, there is no harm at all in Wudhu.

The matter of Ghusl with this monitor on the body is been referred to the Maraaji' of Taqleed and we are waiting for their verdict as the matter is new.

Wassalasm.

You can perform Wudhu directly with water with out washing your face with soap unless you are sure that there are thick layer of dust on your face which prevents the water from reaching the skin, then you need to wash that thick layer first to unable water of Wudhu to reach to your face.

Not all your head nor all your feet must be dry when wipe on them in Wudhu. Just part of the front part of the head, and one or more figures must be dry. The wiping must affect that front part of the head and one or more fingers. The affect is not transfer the wetness from the hand to the wiped areas.

It is allowed to read Quran with out Wudhu as far as you do not touch the writing of the Quranic text. Touching the Quranic text with out Wudhu is not permissible at all, but touching the Quran is allowed as far as you do not touch the Quranic text.

It is always recommended to be with Wudhu, especially when reading Quran.

it does not invalidate the wudhu as long as there is not emission of semen (in such case a ghusl would be required).

With prayers for your success.

Yes, it is recommended for the female during her menstrual cycle to perform Wudhu for every daily prayer not to perform it because she is not supposed to pray, but to sit on her prayer place or prayer mat and remember Allah (SWT) and recite Tasbeeh, Estighfaar, Salawaat, Du'a etc for the usual time of her Prayers.

It is also recommended for female during her menstrual cycle to perform Ghusl of Jum'a , Ghusl of Ehram , Ghusl of Ziyarat, and other recommended Ghusls.

Wassalam.

The doubtful thoughts about Wudhu and Ghusl and even Salah (Namaz)should be ignored if it is
repeated. If it happens once or twice, then we should be sure that the
Wudhu or Ghusl has been performed properly. But when it starts
repeating, then ignore it and take your Wudhu or Ghusl or Namaz as valid.

Wassalam.

Yes, actually it is mustahabb to do wudu and recite du'a at prayer times.

However you will not technically be in a state of wudu until after the monthly cycle has passed and you have done ghusl, it is just for spiritual/physical cleansing.
 
However you should not recite the ayat for which sadjah is mandatory and it is said that one should be in a state of purification to recite Du'a al-Mashlool (which you probably aren't reciting before sleeping anyway!).

Washing your body with out intention of Spritual washing which is called Ghusl, does not mean that you will not need Wudhu for Prayers. Wudhu is must before performing Prayers. If you perform obligatory Ghusl like Ghusl of Janabah, then you pray with that Ghusl with out Wudhu. If you perform a recommended Ghusl like Ghusl of Jum'a, then you can pray with it with out a need for Wadhu.

Just shower or washing the body does not mean valid Ghusl.

After you perform Ghusl or Wudhu, your state of purity ( Taharah) continues unless it is broken by wind, urine, stool, sleeping, etc. Any breaking of wind will invalidate the Wudhu and Taharah.

Wassalam.
