Do the first bit suggested in that treatment plan, i.e. steps 1& 2 then reassess, you're looking at a fairly long course of treatment just for the pre-surgical phase.
I think you're looking at very much worse case scenarios for the post surgical bit too, I'd say well over 95% of patients don't have any of the things you're worried about.
The issue with your jaw relationship is not something which can be answered very easily, seems to vary a lot from person to person I'm afraid.
If you want to sound all professional, call it a "Class 2", which is how dentists describe your bite.
Good luck with things, you're a very interesting case, so it's nice to get updates.
