I know that practicing good form all day has been said and a great place to help with your goals is the supple leopard book. He talks about your everyday form as well as great mobility work to help fix the problems.
With the rear delt I find a lacross ball against the wall is great. You can really determine the pressure. As far as sitting a lot, make sure you have the same distance from your ribs to your pelvis as you would standing; put your hands on your chest as a cue to remind your shoulder blades where to be and keep the stomach towards the spine with about 20% effort all day. Breath down into your belly and this will help keep your spine braced. Stand up every so often at work too.http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/231713-rob112-3-means.html

Can you post a picture of you standing with your arms raised overhead (elbows locked) as high as they will go (try to get it from at least the waist up so I can see pelvic tilt as well). Keep your hands in a neutral position (i.e.: palms facing each other). I want to look at a few things to see how your scapula rotate as well. From the side shots it looks like your upper traps are short, and your scapula depressors are under activated.
Have you read the two articles on my blog about shoulder health, they have some basics in there, and then we can get into more detail based on personal needs.
(Glad you PMed me in here, by the way!)

Great thread. Been very helpful. I'm getting PT for this issue right now, which has caused repeated supraspinatus problems. o_0

Lower trap work / scapular retraction / inner and outer cable isolation work fixes a lot of issues.

Tyga, Is that your back? Is that you in the pic? I do t get it: how are your lats that big when the rest is, not to be rude but behind so much?

They just look huge. Don't even look like it could possibly be the same person. I don't feel mine are very big. That's why I ask, what the--- did you do to get them like that?

I don't get it . Good answer, but the quads and the lats just don't add up to any of the other photos. Good luck anyways. Peace

Can you take one more of these from the back. It looks on top of weak retractors, that your depressors are also weak, these being the serratus anterior and lower traps.
In the meantime, start stretching your upper traps, pecs, lats, pec minor, and hip flexors, as it looks like some compensation in the lumbar pelvic hip complex is occuring as well.

Not too many stretches for the upper body, but a lot of activation, correctives and strengthening movements.

Notice how your shoulders are "shrugged" upwards a little. This is due to an imbalance in upper to lower trap (and serratus) strength. Time to really start focusing on the scapula depressors: Y's, forearm wall slides, back wall slides, scapula dips, reach roll lift, etc.
