I am unfamiliar with the model but taking a guess; the drive belt could be slipping when it picks up something. It would be a good idea to look underneath to see what those sticks and stones might be getting stuck on instead of being thrown clear and check the drive belt for condition and tension.

The air gap should be as close as possible without touching, bearing in mind the flywheel will grow as it warms. I don't know the recommended gap for that engine but I usually set them to 0.008" and find that works ok.

A simple diagnostic shortcut is starter fluid. Remove air filter and spray a short burst (1 second) of starter fluid directly into throat of carburetor. Promptly attempt to start.

If it runs for a couple seconds and dies, then compression and spark ok but fuel delivery is not. Check fuel lines and filter inside tank.

If no run, then conirfm spark and compression.
Remove spark plug and hold electrode end against the cylinder and pull starter cord. You should see a spark.

To test compression, spark plug removed, place thumb over spark plug hole and give starter a pull. The compression should push your thumb and make a PFffft sound.

Carburetor setting should be done by a dealer and by using a tachometer. However, to get a ballpark setting. Turn the screws in until they lightly seat, then turn the "H" and "L" screws out 1 1/2 turn. Then have your local dealer finish setting the carb.

Could be any number of things. Fuel, fuel filter, fuel line, fuel tank vent, fuel impulse, carburetor, intake leak, crankcase leak (shaft seals).

The ignition module air gap to flywheel magnet is 0.010 inches (0,3mm). If you dont have a brass feeler gauge use a single layer of electrical tape (0.007 in.) over flywheel magnet.

Sparkplug gap is 0.020 inches (0,5mm).

To test spark remove sparkplug for easier pull. Hold metal threads of plug against engine metal. Give a sharp pull on the starter rope.

If no spark, disconnect kill wire at the ignition module and make another pull.

If still no spark move plug to mounting screw of ignition module.

If still no spark, measure resistance of ignition module secondary winding (sparkplug wire to ignition module metal armature).Typical 5k to 8k ohms or more.

I don't know, the specifications page doesn't give much technical detail at all.

The compression pressure at starting speed of a 2-stroke is lower than generally expected due to the engine capacity growing at a certain speed due to reflected exhaust pressure waves effectively blocking the exhaust port.
A too-high starting compression would result in fuel detonation at speed resulting in piston damage, something many motorcycle owners discovered the hard way in the early days of high performance Japanese bikes.

I would be content with around 100 psi but the real test is how the engine starts and works...

Possible seat switch. Try rising out of seat and sitting down hard. If problem abates then replace seat switch.

On this model I believe you can disconnect the seat switch and it will start and run (there won't be an operator not in seat safety, so reconnect after testing). Disconnect seat switch and try moving levers and see it problem goes away.

The user manual usually describes the adjustment process fairly well and usually it works well on a new or nearly new machine but not so well on older machines. The typical carburettor has three screws being the throttle stop adjustment for the idle speed, a mixture screw for low speed and one for high speed - by the time a machine has aged enough to need adjustment, getting it right is nearly impossible and getting it near enough to do the work is the main aim.

From the position the screws were in when the machine last run well it is important to note 1/8th of a turn at a time is the sort of adjustment needed. Adjust the low speed screw for a reasonable idle and then up to working speed to adjust the other for smooth running, or at least that is the theory.
The trouble is adjustment of one screw has an effect on the other which means a deal of patience toing and froing between the screws until a balance is reached...
