My first thought on wading through all of your prose is that complexity doesn't necessarily make things better. I can't even begin to figure out what's going on.

As far as following multiple investment strategies - the more of these you follow, the closer you get to just buying the entire market. That is far easier done by just buying a couple of index funds and being done with it. How much time do you have available to spend monitoring your investments? How much time do you WANT to spend monitoring your investments? If this is going to be your retirement hobby/job, that's fine. But if you want to spend your time elsewhere, you might be saddling yourself with a bigger time commitment than you really want.
