comment What is a perfect fifth?
The problem here is that the two explanations mean two totally different things: the first refers to "perfect" or "harmonic" vs. "temperate". For example in the key of A the perfect 5th is 330Hz and the temperate 5th is 329.63Hz. The second explanations defines "perfect" vs. "diminished". Which refers to an interval of either 7 or 6 half steps. Both definitions have nothing to do with each other and are not a great choice of words

comment Simulating speaker distortion with Doppler shift
Yep, pretty much. This is very non-harmonic whereas "good" distortion such as tube, overdrive, etc. are typically odd order harmonic.

comment What are some practical tips to easily change tunings on stage?
Take a look at the Line 6 Variax (no endorsement intended, though I do like them). They have fully programmable tunings which you can recall with a knob on the guitar or foot switch.

comment Why do harmonics sound good?
I don't think this is true: Neurons are excited by a bending wave of the basilar membrane in the cochlea. Different frequencies are simply exciting different areas on the membrane and there is nothing inherently different about harmonic or in-harmonic excitation. Neither one results in equal spacing of the excitation points.

comment What chord is this and when is it the dominant?
Could also be a Cm6, especially with C as a root here.
