comment What tool is used for this tight plumbing situation?
You can also use a pair of pump pliers and a screw driver. Put the ends of the pump plier's handles into the drain and use a screw driver placed perpendicular to the pliers between the handles as leverage to turn.

comment Do I need vents to devices in the primary waste line?
I agree with you. I just wanted to clarify your concern about wet vents and that "a momentary flood of water from an upstream fixture could result in an air pressure imbalance, sucking water or pushing water out of a trap" -- this is why the toilet needs to be the last fixture to drain into the wet vent.

comment Do I need vents to devices in the primary waste line?
As far as I know, most places that allow wet vents, require the toilet be the last fixture drained into the wet vent. They also do not allow toilets from more then one floor be drained into a wet vent. The original diagram violates both of these requirements. As for the concern with air pressure imbalance, wet vents are sized differently then vents or drain lines in order to ensure that they are large enough to compensate.

comment How do I secure a copper pipe going through a wall?
You can also use a non-copper riser clamp, just be sure to wrap the portion of the copper pipe that will come in contact with a rubber type tape such as electrical tape.

comment How do I seal a garden hose against a nipple?
The picture of the 'nipple' you posted is not a barbed hose adaptor. It is a PEX by MIP (male iron pipe thread) adaptor. So if that is what your adaptor is, then that would be your problem.

What is the range listed on the yellow tab on the PRV? Have you tried adjusting the pressure by turning the adjustment screw out?

To add: typically tank type toilets are 12" and flush valve toilets are 10".
