It probably doesn't surprise you because you have a single minded view and don't realize that alot of Texans are dems and libs.

They went beyond the typical Whig positions on many of the above issues. That's why they were considered Radicals. Slavery was only one issue.
Well some were Radical and some weren't. Issues and policy positions changed over time, but there's clear continuity between National Republicans, Whigs, and Republicans. But it was the slavery issue (especially Kansas-Nebraska) that drove the breakdown of the party (and the Democrats as well, in 1860).

I'm sorry, I don't quite get the question. The nativists certainly weren't Democrats, because immigrants almost all voted Dem. Many Whigs became nativist/American after the party broke up after the 1852 election. Fillmore ran as the American candidate in 1856. And there were many nativists in the anti-Nebraska formations that eventually coalesced into the Republican party. There's lively scholarly debate on how nativist the early Republicans were. It's beyond my competence to weigh in on that.

Indeed. Well done, Bird.
