comment What's up with those “drushy” Rashis in Nasso
I think one factor that pushes a reader to seek extraordinary interpretations is the strangeness of having a block of text repeated over and over a dozen times (the offering of each of the nesi'im is exactly the same).

comment Resources to understand commentary in my tikkun korim
The introductions would explain how each is meant to be used... The main one, Shita Mekubetzet, is a set of little memorization tips which may or may not be helpful for keeping straight in your head places where trop is almost the same as a nearby passage but slightly diffferent, etc. It's not anything standard--just an idiosyncratic set of tips worked out by the author.

comment 12 hours to the day, 12 hours to the night
In one of ibn Ezra's books on astrology, sefer ha-ta'amim, he makes this point when explaining why the ecliptic is divided into 360 degrees--that the number was chosen because it allows for easy division.

comment Is there a “peshat”-style commentary on Chaim Vital's Etz Chayim?
You could also try the commentaries on Otzrot Hayyim (which is made up of all the sections in Mahadura Tinyana of Etz Hayyim), for which there are several commentaries like that, including one by the author of Matok Mi-Dvash himself (his commentary on otzrot hayyim is also titled Matok Mi-dvash).
