If space is THAT much of a premium, better to skip the isolation rather than treatment. Draw it in CAD first to see if it all works. This really highlights the importance of design first down to...

Up to you, but I would mirror the soffit on the other side strictly for symmetry. Your big problem is Atmos and no back wall. There won't be any significant separation between your rear channels...

Personally, I'm not a fan of IB, but if you were to do it, it might be better behind the screen since the visceral nature of the sub is actually localizable. Otherwise, as Roger mentioned, should...

I use JM Insulshield. It has a coated side so that you can leave it exposed without fabric. OC makes a similar product called SelectSound Acoustic Blanket if memory serves.
