comment What do beats have to do with playing guitar?
The only thing beats would be related to with respect to chords and notes are their _values_—how long they're held. Otherwise, there's no particular relationship between a beat and a C major chord or an F#. And beats are completely independent of any particular instrument.

comment Making sense of 5/4 time signatures
Who says this? Conductors of amateur choirs, music teachers (before college), and so on. But how would we interpret this 5/4 then? Is it "strong-weak-weak-weak-weak" or something else? (Also, I've edited the question accordingly.)

comment Finding and improving singing range and power
@Matthaeus: You should not wait until you're 30 for an accurate range; just be aware that where you are now isn't necessarily where you'll be then. As for the "cleft"—there isn't a limit, and the two ranges usually overlap a fair amount. (The fact that they're different vocal production mechanisms means that it's not necessarily one or the other.)

@jjmusicnotes: It also sounds like the OP is talking about assignments in choruses, where he likely has little, if any, control over the repertoire performed.

comment Orchestration and painting evenly over the spectrum
It sounds like you're referring more to the clarity of the sound than the "fullness" of it. Could you suggest a musical example of the contrast you're interested in exploring?

comment How do I develop a bass voice?
OK. That's much more believable. On the other hand, you really don't need to go down to A1—there's only a handful of works that call for it! Practically, it sounds like you're a baritone. You shouldn't really need to get much lower than the Eb2—and even then, it's more a "bonus" than a necessity.
