comment Conservative / Nusach Sfard
Where? I've seen some fairly liberal Sephardic synagogues (the most you get is no mehitza and affiliate affiliation with Conservative affiliate groups, e.g. Sisterhoods and Men's Clubs and USY), but they've never associated wit the USCJ.

comment how does one do hechi kedusha?
B is the Sephardic custom as well. We should follow the sha"tz mila-be-mila until the end of "haEl haQadosh". When the sha"tz concludes "ledor vador" when you say "Ata Qadosh" (as I do), I think you say the latter as it is part of your personal Amida as well. As for the other way around, I'm not sure, but I will err towards saying "Ata Qadosh" for the aforementioned reason.

comment Why do the Sifrei Eme"s (i.e. Job, Proverbs, Psalms) have cantillation marks?
And I believe the Merkaz haRav uses a variant on the Syrian melody. (In its Nawa variant, as opposed to Syrian Nahawand)

They do. Go to the Syrian Pizmonim site and look up "Iyov".

comment Tzanua…Not Tznius!
Ba3al Qeri'a:Ba3alath Qeri'a. (or, if you prefer the analogue to the popular but incorrect term, "Ba3ala Qoreith".)

comment Hebrew Pronunciation of the Conservative Movement
Adeni (southern Yemenite) Jews use gimel and quf. It's only due to the popularity of the northern Yemenite (Sana`i) pronunciation that "jimel" and "guf" became associated with Yemenite Jewry in general.

comment Different traditions in Hebrew pronunciation
No, "Adonay" is correct. That's a valid position for qamatz gadol to appear. All Sephardic traditions (except the Persian, which pronounces qamatz gadol as long aw) support this. I have no idea where Yahu got any idea otherwise.
