    In the last few seconds of the video, is the second stage (the middle booster) tipping to the left? Does not look good (play at 0.25x speed)

    2mm hole in ISS

    Small question: Is there even a way of drilling a hole in Space (on the ISS)? I know they have "screwdrivers" for EVA's, but is there a suitable drill head for that ?

    There are structural enhancements in the FH core, which make it possible to handle the boosters. These are adding weight to the core and if you aren't flying a Falcon Heavy, you would just lose performance, payload mass and therefore money. So indirect yes

    When the exposure time is too high , even a half moon apears as a whole. Would be possible if you want to see the engine

    I think the light, which comes from the camera, reflected from the foil at the top of the engine
