Do you use Mint XFCE CE or xfce installed on top of Mint Main ?

3. Drag-n-dropping files into Thunar; is there a way to disable the copy mode? I know you can do it manually each time by pressing the shift key while dragging the file.
5. Volume; is there a display when you increase/decrease your volume?
7. Menu add; can you add your favorite apps near the top of the Menu (between Run Program and Settings)?

That is essentially correct. No easy menu editor in 4.6 that I have found.
They say one is coming in Xrfce4.8 so we can wait and hope.
There is a way to change the menu but it is a bit of a challenge.
