Might try Franklin Frame, he does this kind of stuff, also knows a chrome plater. You will have to pay appropriately, but he does really good work.

Interesting the Ciocc sold you a frame direct from Italy, would have expected they would send you to a distributor in US. But, there is a pandemic on and they need to make Euro's, so all bets off.

Don't drill out the eyelets, get the correct spokes/nipples.

Well, I'll offer an opinion for what it is worth. The piece in your hand looks like a bearing cage, not a race. What does the race look like? And, no way an auto shop has a bicycle bearing cage or...

Further thought on this one, the joint is likely a potential crack starter in a fatigue environment (pulling on handlebars while climbing for example). Seems risky to ride for any length of...

yeah, this is weird. I'm convinced its the wheel after basically disassembling most of this bike and switching wheels around. I thought it was the skewer for a bit but can make it go away with a...

It seems that you already have a triple crank set up with a 30 tooth, combined with the 26 tooth in the back that's pretty low. Why not get to the new location and see how it works? No comment on...
