That might gore your ox but most folks would support it. Pedals and feet on the MUP, motors on the road. Though I think motorized wheelchairs are often permitted for the truly infirm.

Covid shortages, you never know where the shop may have to source the parts. Even still, that probably is a little high for 7 speed.

I'm confident you can return it unless it was some sort of "no return" closeout. PBK is legit. I doubt they will negotiate with you for a discount, probably just send it back to their supplier.

"and your derailleur can't handle the chain tension," implies that the chain is too short. That's all he's saying. I don't see that it has any bearing on your issue, whatever it is.
