I've noticed that YPAO sets the front left speaker trim to zero and...

This discussion appears to be about reference level (absolute), not eq and house curves.

And it's worth mentioning that if you change the crossover after YPAO the results won't be ideal. And by...

Based on this, where should I set the upper limit when measuring the LFE channel (sub only)? 120Hz? 200Hz?

Well, now that I'm aware my sub is straining below 25Hz to produce any output, I don't see myself ever measuring below 25Hz with this sub again. No point in harming the sub just to show 10Hz lower.
