comment How can I remove this toilet shutoff valve?
I agree, it looks like threads covered in dope. Try holding the copper/brass piece stationary, while turning the valve body anticlockwise (Lefty Loosey).

+1 for a small central stop at the bottom, and a ball catch at the top of each door.

comment How can I stop my house from waking my wife up every day in the winter?
Honestly, I don't know that much about the keys. Take a look at the valve, it might allow you to turn it using a screwdriver.

If you had a leak, mold and/or mildew could be the culprit.

STOP! That "barrel in the ceiling" is likely an expansion tank, which is mostly filled with air. If you release the air, it will fill with water and no longer function. Unfortunately, the pinging and popping is likely the plumbing of the heating system expanding. These are normal sounds caused by the expanding metal rubbing, grinding, and straining against itself and other materials.
