Catalina requires APFS. That's the only option. But I would generally suggest using an external SSD - they're about $150 for 1TB.

Yup, exactly. If the files are changed, we're going to copy them. If not, we're not. But we'll only copy the things that are changed.

There's not much to document: if the drive is not mounted, schedules will mount, copy and eject when done. It happens automatically.

First boot on spinning drives under 10.15 can be quite slow. Booting from it again should be significantly faster (don't update the backup in between).

It specifically limits itself when it hits thermal maximums, so there's really nothing to worry about.

This looks like SuperDuper isn't in "Full Disk Access" in the Security & Privacy preference pane, or it needs to be removed, then restarted and re-added when prompted by SD.
