      I am very sorry to really only address two of your questions, but my
      knowledge of women's garb is sketchy. My opinion would be that for
      dirty work they wore dirty-work clothing and then changed outfits.

      You want to search for "tasuki" sleeve cord. It's basically just a
      long (~6 or 7 feet) cord or strip of fabric tied into a figure 8
      with your arms through the loops and the X in the middle of your back.
      It keeps your sleeves bunched up against your torso.

      "Shô hachi-i" is the name of the rank. Keep scrolling down to the
      other table. I believe you would sign things "Takeda Sakura hachi-i"
      or "Takeda-hachi-i". Others would address you as I have in the
      salutation, or as "Takeda-dono".

      If you are female (you've offered no clear indication, sorry) you
      can substitute "hime" for any instance of "dono" above.
