comment Minimum Number of Days before Hefsek Tahara: Sephardi vs. Ashkenazi
Well that's what it says in Shiurei Shevet HaLevi on pg. 297 second paragraph. I will try to speak to my Yemenite friends and ask them if this is true. They don't ALWAYS go with the Rambam.

comment Minimum Number of Days before Hefsek Tahara: Sephardi vs. Ashkenazi
I assume that it would be as a zecher to the halacha min hatorah of a niddah being tmeah a flat rate of seven days after which she could go to the mikva, so they make her wait seven days after which she could begin the process of counting seven clean days to go to the mikva (see Taz YD 196:6 for a similar custom)

Because of that question, Chazal were gozer to keep seven clean days. But it seems to be only a chasash d'rabanan.

comment Safek Deorayta and the Meiri
I don't know about Meiri but I do know that the Maharit Algazi, Chavos Daas, and Lev Aryeh write that even according to the Rambam that ספק דאורייתא לקולא מן התורה thats only by an issur not a mitzvah in which case one must be מחמיר מן התורה.
