Oy! Nice info.
I'm glad you found it useful :)
You can try this sample pack from skifonix, there're a few kicks and snares (link in the description): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Si--cCx6Uao&list=LLxgJe1gfMJcqbTaUc4UH2Eg&index=3 However you have to keep in mind that the choice of kick and snare highly depends on your overall track especially...
Assuming the quality is the same, what's better for music production - headphones or speakers? Might go at both. Most listeners use headphones, so its good to use it to assume compatibility on that device. And speakers to hear if it is very good on speakers (some songs sound nice at headphones but ...

Great article about gain staging https://www.izotope.com/en/learn/gain-staging-what-it-is-and-how-to-do-it.html I'd say make your loudest instrument (drums most of the time) to a certain level of volume (at least -3db or louder) and match other instrument's volume to that by ears - not too loud, no...
I got a feedback on my song in Newgrounds: Nice, the arpeggio give me 2000s electronic dance vibes. I liked how punchy the drums were as well. I think some stuff you could work on for future songs is gain staging and changing the tuning for drums slightly to be more in the key of the music, if you'r...
