This question appears to be off-topic because it is not our bailiwick.

I think you're better off asking on electronics.stackexchange.com. They can recommend specific electronic components that will allow you to control an AC fan motor.

Like I said before: "After putting in all this work, the last thing you will want to do is dig it up again for another repair." Use fittings and clamps specifically designed to work with the pipes in question. This is not the part of the project to cheap out on.

I've personally never seen black polybutylene, but anything is possible. You're going to have to know for certain to get the right fittings. Can you cut off a piece and take it with you to the plumbing supply house?

1/4 mile? ya, way too far. But that makes me think of an improvement. If you can fit 2 of the 1/2 PEX lines through the HDPE, then you could use a T fitting: 1 inch HDPE in, 2 x 1/2 inch PEX out.

comment Insulated radiator foil
As long as the asbestos is contained, there isn't much of a danger. Only when it's exposed to the air and likely to be disturbed and create dust do you need to worry. So if you are planning construction you would want to get it tested. But if you won't touch it ever, don't worry.
