The fourth line of text on the device (counting those two lines on the top right) says: EINGANG 230V~50Hz 4W where 'Eingang' is German for 'input', '230V~50Hz' means '230Volts AC at 50Hz' and 4W is the maximum power. Since the US mains have a voltage of 120V and a frequency of 60Hz, you will need a transformer, but then the device will work.
It's possible to have several visas in the same passport (e.g. an expired visa and a new one), even two unused visas with different periods of validity or back-to-back visas valid over a long period. On the other hand, I don't think consulates would generally issue overlapping visas but none of this is relevant to your travel plans. Whether you have one or ...
Unless the consulate specifically asked for a credit report (and I would be very surprised if they did), they won't actively seek this information (and they would have to pay for it, too). There is just not enough time and resources for this level of diligence on each visa application. In your case, since you are the spouse of an EU citizen and traveling ...
The device may or may not work, but in any case it is not a good idea to try to use it. As greyshade already mentioned, the print on the device states that it operates with 230 Volts at 50Hz, and the US power net does not provide that. Even a transformer would formally not help as the US power system operates on 60Hz, and a transformer will not change that. ...
I seriously doubt there will be any work to unify the signs. The benefits are questionable (looking at the Wikipedia article you linked) - it is really easy to understand the signs in different countries - and the cost of changing all the signs in even one country is huge.
Sea and party immediately reminds me of Barcelona. 2-3 weeks may be too long to stay just in Barcelona. You could take a train or drive to Marseille in under 5 hours and thereafter end your journey with the pleasant summer weather in Nice. Not a party place though.
I cannot provide a comprehensive answer or comparison between Schengen countries but I can add a few bits of relevant information: There are no firm rules at the EU level about that. Schengen countries honor each other's bans through a database called the SIS but they did not agree on the exact circumstances under which people should be banned. EU ...
