It is what it is. The extra preouts are to accommodate switching between different speaker configs (eg 11.1 Neo:X upmix with wides vs 7.1.4 for Atmos).

It's a little confusing because sometimes people refer to them with the model number for the system vs. the speaker. So in order to really scour the used market you have to look for both.

There is a network standby setting (IP control) which can be disabled or enabled in Standby. When disabled the receiver is "asleep" in standby and can't be accessed by network apps.

See pg 49 of the manual (available online if you didn't get it)... screen cap of relevant section attached.

You want to adjust the "Power On Level" setting.

Yes the 5200 can do it.

No they will never be 13ch capable. It's a hardware issue -- they would need more DSP resources, two more DACs etc.

No because it's not mixing the center.

Not just going into the menu, but switching it from "Off" to "On" basically overrides the global SW level with the default 0.0dB value in the SW Level Adjust menu.

It's not upscaling, that's a separate setting (i/p scaler). Scaling = changing resolution.

The Denon X7200WA is basically the receiver version of the Marantz 8802A processor. I would expect the sound quality to be fairly similar.

Are you talking about the different inputs on your subwoofer? There is no "LINE-IN" or "LFE-IN" on the receiver. If so, seems like a question for your subwoofer's manual.
