Congratulations!
Do you play your 2!D opening as a weak 2?
Depends upon partnership. One is mini-Roman, one is strong, either balanced or primary diamonds, others are weak two.
Do you open all 12-counts?
I play opening 1NT as 12-14, and so I am not embarrassed to open even crappy 12-counts. With several partners, I have to play 2/1 GF with a strong NT, and the question is a lot more difficult then. I still open almost all 12-counts, but a light opening ...
when you, as opening bidder, have a 3-suited hand, you have shown two of them, and responder bids 4th suit forcing in your 3rd suit. What to do?
I always just raise the 4th suit holding 4-card support, so 3 for me. But one partner has told me that the "gold standard" for bidding is to bid NT with a stopper in the 4th suit, and reserve raising the 4th suit for hands that you can't ...
Hesitation Problem
Yes. I recognize the hand. I did bid 5C as an advance sacrifice the first time, and they guessed wrong. 5H-1 was above-average for us.
Ethical, questionable or cheating?

I apologise. For some (unknown) reason, I started thinking you wrote the OP.
Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
I think Ulrich's comment was aimed at the sequence 1m-1M; 1N when Responder might not be inclined to use checkback when minimum.
Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
I don't have a problem with over-alerting if everybody does it (appropriately). I have a problem when I'm told to alert a fairly innocuous bid and (for example) Precision pairs don't have to alert a lot of their bids which have serious implications that the average (non-big-club ...
Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
And the next time you try that, Opener will be 5-3-3-2 with a 15-count (5 of his minor), and you will be adrift at the 2-level with no fit.
