Seth: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Innes: Great. Neimi and him end up almost equal if she goes Sniper. Dozla: Well... he's usable. Saleh: FE8's Pent. Rennac: FE8's Vaida. Duessel: Great tank, can last until endgame fine. Syrene: They weren't happy having 3 good Pegasus Knights on FE7. They wanted it like FE6...
You, sir, have made my day. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard about anything FE related than comparing Rennac to Vaida. Lol.
Rarely. Aside from Lunatic mode, I generally always bench the start-of-the-game Paladin at the first available opportunity, and later on I usually already have a team picked out and there's no room for any silly prepromotes, which are often inferior to my trained units anyway. That said, Pent is a boss.

Yes. No reason not to. Basically Lv 21 w/ their last class's skills so you shouldnt feel bad if you plan on starting to use them a bit later. They are worth raising though. Say'ri has a good class selection, Frederick is a great father for a Tank child, everyone else has high enough stats to be usable immediately.
FE8 - sometimes Duessel, sometimes Dozla, and almost always Syrene FE9 - Titania, Stefan a little bit, and I forget the rest of the prepromotes in this game. FE10 - Sothe only because he's mandatory, everyone else because this game was silly with promotion. FE11 - No? I don't remember any except Jeigan. FE13 - Yes to all because second seals.
I use prepromotes if I like them, same as any other character. So Echidna*, Juno**, Geitz, Jaffar, Rennac, Say'ri... I guess I used Titania, but only because I felt kind of understaffed at the beginning of PoR (by which I mean I couldn't just ignore all my cavalry units like I prefer to).
*At this point all my credibility goes out the window. **If not then, then here for sure.
