Keep in mind this is doublelift shitting on a ~1800-1900 AD carry but...
The only reason you can do that is if you throw your trap under graves after he quickdraws, e and q, he is forced to eat the E+Q and if he tries to dps instead of running, he's stuck in the trap and caitlyn gets to abuse her range and get 2-3 free autos.

Yes he's still a top tier jungler. You have to be a little bit more careful about using your ultimate to heal in the jungle instead of ganking but the main point was to bring him down a touch on his W. He can still do everything he used to without trouble.

didn't watch but i can think of 3 possibilities:
1. improved recall on akali lets her recall in shroud 2. using shroud with the bulk / center of it on terrain/out of map areas makes the shroud AoE indicator invisible, kind of like how the invisible pantheon global jump works. 3. you were careless and let her just walk out of it through brush/fog without noticing

They both have a spammable AOE with enhanced effect on hit, survivability boost, and a speed boost, and a displacement ult. They play pretty similar except for the ult.
Hec is just as boring as skarner too, basically you just turn on your aura and just mash Q 99% of the time.
They seem similar but I've found their playstyles to be fairly different. While their abilities can be broadly placed in similar categories, their actual mechanics differ significantly enough that I don't find them boring/the same.

Not really. Doublelift and Chaox will talk about what they're doing and shit sometimes. It's not like there's a lot to learn with AD carry anyways. It's mostly just mechanics and having good positioning. At least 50% of your lane phase is reliant on your support.
You also don't have to worry about roaming or whatever since the only big objective during lane phase is dragon.
