If your not going to use them it's worth putting them for sale on the EAB Marketplace or Amibay/eBay, I've seen several wanted ads for these cables over the last couple of years.

I don't see a problem then really if bandwidth is OK. I could see a use for limiting it if it was affecting the bandwidth, but if everything's fine there's not much point in rocking the boat.

No idea about AmiTCP but AE works fine with MiamiDX, I use it frequently. Could it be a ports problem or similar? Not opening the correct port or something? Maybe it could be done manually if so.

I've successfully opened sealed PSU's before with the use of a Dremel and a circular saw blade attachment. As long as you make a clean cut it easily glues back together with a invisible seam.

Yes and no, mostly no.
Only 720x576 PAL mode supports 15KHz input, or 720x480 NTSC. It would be very limited on screen modes.
