  1. Seeing as how you're as subject to the vagaries of tech as I am, I'll keep this brief.

    - First off, 'Wallace Ware' is what they call a "red-flag" pseudonym.
    This isn't 'W. Hermanos' time.
    The Writers Guild has a rule that allows a screenwriter who doesn't approve of what's been done to his script to remove his own name and replace it with a registered pen-name, to guarantee his payments and royalties.
    'Wallace Ware' was actually David Karp, who had film and TV credits going back to the '50s.
    Nero Wolfe was a series that writers wanted to get on, because Rex Stout's work was so admired.
    Guessing here that David Karp didn't like the changes that he was forced to make (for time and other things), and so 'Wallace Ware' gets the credit (as he would in a subsequent episode - but that's another story …).
    - Quinnie Martin Jr was the third generation in his family to break into the biz as a film cutter.
    At entry level, that's a hired hand; you get the footage handed to you and put it together as you're told to.
    So the editing was the work of the director (Mr. O'Herlihy) and the producers (Goff & Roberts).
    - No way to know this for sure, but that 'gay' angle was very much not Stout - and may have been one reason for 'Wallace Ware's' writer credit.
    - John Addison likely got the job doing the Wolfe theme as a result of his earlier gig on the feature film Sleuth (the Olivier version - you know, the good one).
    Wolfe in its turn likely led to the Murder, She Wrote music gig.
    - The other stuff I thought I had was in the other posts above; do what you will here.

    Other stuff when I (or you) get around to it …
