Yes on those calm days pop the green race in the exp for a test drive. There's not much difference in switching the vertical rods so you could actually keep the green race leading edge in the nym put the 3wraps on its verticals, then take the other 2 green race rods and put them in the exp as the leading edge outer rods with the 3wrap center.

Yes there is room. One set is held in with the end caps, the other set is free floating but going nowhere. Not really needed but it's a way of getting a lighter frame as long as Andy already has a 3wrap frame on the exp. Usually the 1.5b vented came with 2 frames, a 3 and 4wrap, but I'm not sure about now days, if the kite is being picked up at the store maybe the choice is there for a 2 wrap exchange for the 3.

I'm not sure what frame(s) your vented will come with, as a point of interest your exp has a 3wrap frame that interchanges with all 1.5 based revs. You may want to get a 2wrap frame with the vented rev and put that frame in your exp for the light wind days. On very strong wind days you can use the 3wrap leading edge along with the 2wrap leading edge tucked in the leading edge, making it a super strong but heavy 5wrap leading edge.

I'm thinking there might be short handles involved with no leaders, just clips, if that's the case put the longer (black sleeved) on the top and give it a try. You don't have much to lose, just the time it takes to give it a try.

"Seemingly" broken cleanly off. Did you find the broken missing piece? If no,,,

 

My guess is the glue broke loose and that piece slid down into the tube, you need to break the other one loose and pull it out pliers work ok, I use a long metal rod to push those pieces out, then reglue them back in.
