The Rebbe didn't actually write many seforim. He wrote hayom yom in the name of the Friediker Rebbe and a Haggadah (and I think he also wrote a biography of the Rebbe Maharash). igros kodesh is from his letters, which I think some were written by him and some were dictated to the secretary. The rest is from his sichos (speeches) and ma'amorim (chassidus ...
I have a (paper) book called אמרי מדריך that seems to be what you're looking for. It highlights the shoresh, showing the other letters in outline, and it includes letters from the shoresh which were dropped in conjugation in minuscule type. The book is entirely in Hebrew and I can't read the introduction, so I don't know what other notational conventions ...
Does he have the most published seforim out of all gedolim? Many of 'his' books are (near-)transcriptions of what he said, in many cases not even corrected by him ("בלתי מוגה").

Ovadia Yosef, (Etbonan Publisher, 2006) and Honoring Parents in Halachah by Rabbi Tzuriel Taaseh (Targum Press, 2004). Both of them has a collection of midrashim and mussar sayings from chazal.
The book My Father, My Mother and Me - Sons and daughters tell of their devotion, challenges, and successes in honoring their parents by Yehudis Samet (Artscroll), is really great!

I want to learn Nach on a "Pashat Pashut" format. I don't want to read the Hebrew-English Nach, neither the "fancy" Meforshim that delve through all of the Devrei Torah on each Passuk. Sounds like the M'tzudos would be a perfect fit. This is a pair of commentaries written in the 1700s by R. David Altschuler. M'tzudas Tziyon explains difficult words and ...
