Per the FAQ, questions about identifying songs (and by extension, composers thereof) are off-topic here.

Difficult to say without actually trying it. Personally I think I'd find the relative lack of open strings and the use of multiple small barres tiring after a while, but that's just speculation on my part. If you say it has already helped one novice, then it sounds like the tuning may have merit.

I think asking that about a specific tuning, especially one that (if I understand correctly) you made up yourself, might be considered "too localised". You can always check on Music: Practice & Theory Meta, though.

You may be right about the nomenclature. I've always referred to the low E string as the first, though, as this way the numbers are consistent with bass guitar strings. But yes, I was talking about the low E and A strings.

It's some form of re-entrant tuning, but I don't think I've ever seen anything exactly like this. Interestingly, all chords in your diagram that use the first string are inverted, because the 2nd string (tuned all the way down to D) adds a lower-pitch note than the chord root. How did you come up with this tuning? I assume you've also swapped the 1st and 2nd strings, compared to standard tuning?
