Looks like the manual has missed an update. I'll stick it on my to do list. Rout was buffed a bit for the 1.4.2 release when the archery changes were made and elves lost the free archery skill.

To be honest, if you've read the source material, you might already have the impression that elves are easy mode, and it's definitely described as such in the manual.

I don't see any particular reason for them to do so; they're not linked in any way to the FCPB implementation. Assuming that they're useful to some denizen of Angband who wishes to create darkness...

Since you've picked up Flanking, Dodging would be the skill with the most obvious synergy. I think I'd use what you've learned from the pacifist runs to play quite cautiously, this Edain will be a...

You don't really need body armour, the shield is ample. Survival for this character relies on not being spotted. Taking an extra couple of turns to die when being hit provides a small advantage, but...

Generally I prefer leather to studded leather on stealthy characters. You will eventually go over 10 lbs and lose that stealth point, but initially it's better to have say 6 lbs of leather and 2 lbs...

So by any character you mean any character with 6 Grace?

Reaching 22 takes 8 Smithing skill, 8 Masterpiece and 6 Grace.
9 Smithing lets you do it with 4 Grace, but that's another 900 XP.
