Problem 4: Received my PCMtuner, is it normal that those chip legs are not soldered to the board? Should I solder them or leave them?

They are unused pads hence not soldered, IC has a large pad under so no need to worry. It works well.
Don’t touch leave as unsoldered. When u push back, your dongle will be damaged and locked, don’t touch it. If u open it you void the warranty, if it fails and you don’t open it you have warranty.
