Repair it using the same hardware it originally had. It sounds like the chair had a T-Nut inserted: Assuming the "male" screw in the leg still has good threads (you did not indicate that it was bad), buy a matching T-Nut at a good hardware store. Note- there are quite a few sizes and types of T-Nuts, bring a sample from one of the other legs/chairs.

Once the urethane has dried, sanding will only fog up the surface. You could sand it to remove any large imperfections and then put on another coat. If you were getting streaks you may want to work in a slightly cooler area so it takes longer to dry and you have more time to work with it.
I've used that material before and cut it with a sharp razor blade and a clamped straightedge. I didn't use scissors because like you said, there's really no way to get a good clean cut.

However rear car seats in a sedan or those in many pickup trucks are not adjustable and you may be able to use that as a guide. Note that comfort in seating often has the seat bottom sloped down toward the back ...
Just rotating the cam locks should allow you to remove the top, they don't have to be pulled out to release the cam-lock post on the top.. You could use a thin slotted screwdriver to rotate them even though they are blocked from removal. Then take off the top and when you put it back together make sure you do not make the same mistake.
There are vinyl patch kits available, most often sold for use repairing car seats. I've had mediocre success with them. However, since you have that extended warranty, it's definitely worth checking if this is covered first; anything you do might be an excuse to void that warranty. I suspect thst this will be considered normal wear and not covered but ya ...
