comment What's the advantage of PEX crimp/clamp over the expansion connection?
Regarding the pressure loss: (Having taken a few fluid dynamics classes), I can assure you that the pressure loss across a few short slightly smaller cross sections (fittings) is fairly insignificant compared to the losses in the tubing itself. So, unless you have very short runs and plan to undersize the supply line, pressure loss is not an issue.

Usually, there are some shims near or under jamb near the strike plate to prevent the deadbolt strike plate screws from pulling the jamb away from the door, but they do nothing to help secure the door. The deadbolt strike plate screws are sufficient. ..but see my answer

If you live in a cold climate and this is an exterior door, then you do want to fill those gaps with expanding "gap filler" to prevent drafts.
