comment Should I run laminate continuously through rooms, or separate with T moulding?
Going backwards isn't that big of a deal. I managed just fine while running continuous laminate from a room to a closet.

comment Can I install laminate next to tile without using T-moulding?
Very good point about the manufacturer warranty! It's something I hadn't considered, but I ultimately decided to accept the small risk of buckling. I figure I can always shave off a bit of the first plank and install a T molding if it does buckle. I was planning on uploading an answer after a year of issue-free installation, since the most expansion I'll see will probably occur in the summer.

@Tester is absolutely right. Air is easily compressible, water not so much.

I'd sister a short length of 2x4 on either side of the existing joist. That way you don't have to make a new hole, and you can face the gap in the bracket uphill.
