I have answered a few of these questions myself. 

ANSWER TO #3: Modifying the Invoice Header  

In v8 (Presumably because it now uses QWeb Views) you must edit the invoice HEADER via: Settings > Technical > User Interface > Views > external_layout_header

The FOOTER can be edited via: Settings > Technical > User Interface > Views > external_layout_footer

ANSWER TO #4: Multiple Invoice Templates

I created a step-by-step guide with screenshots to help save others time.

Here's the guide to Create Multiple Invoice Templates in Odoo v8:

David, your method for multiple report works perfectly. My main worry is this is will not be tied to a module am developing, that is, if i want to do multiple reports on the deployment environment, i will have to follow same process that i did while developing on my local machine. Is there a way to use code such that the template can be automatically loaded so that i can have multiple xml corresponding to multiple report formats? New to odoo, using v9

Hi David,

thanks for that guide, helped a lot. I followed guide in answer #4 and everything works OK, only problem I have is that I cannot print invoice with new template as PDF. When I print to HTML (popup window), everything is OK, but when I change report type to PDF, invoice is printed using default template no matter what template I selected by Print button. Have you tried to print template created with your guide to PDF, does it work for you?

EDIT: Solved by unchecking Reload from Attachement checkbox in Report settings (first screen of the guide).
