Well, I can't see your cabinets, and don't know how wide your face frames are. If they are exactly 1 1/2", your 2.5's will be fine. (I assume your cabinets HAVE face frames and that these are not...

I dont think you would "pour a new slab on top of the old" when the original surface could be repaired and simply resurfaced. That's what topping mix is for. But there can be bonding issues,...

Yes, it's mold. I wouldn't want it used in my house. 5 gallons is about $12, so not a hard decision to make.

From the looks of it, I would cut an additional 3/8" - 1/2" off that door to be sure you catch all the damaged edges.

The best way to cut it is to make yourself a guide from a piece of 1/4"...

My 2 cents is that I really tire of seeing posts like this on a diy site. If you don't like the price, do it yourself.

The pipe in the wall is wrong. Try replacing the dryer hood outside, it should come with a new straight pipe. Your elbow should fit inside that new straight pipe.
