Another deadlift form check video

Not necessarily. I think it was more your legs straightening too fast on that one, which then tips the weight somewhat forward and can cause a more rounded pull to keep the bar closer and try and compensate for the low back having to do the rest of the torso straightening.

Not sure if you need them yet, because I am no authority. Maybe just honing in on the floor more and then adding a slight, say 1" deficit and seeing from there!? Believe me, sometimes a deficit can make #25 pounds feel like #90...! I am also speaking from a body type that is more built for pulling, ie: longer legs and arms and a shorter to med torso so 2" deficit is pretty good for me.
As far as the hip thrust, yeah it was hard to tell since it was kinda dark. If you are comfortable and are pulling strong they way you are doing, then ride it out and change things slowly over time, so as to not get info overload.
Strong stuff and hang in there
