The Picasa Album embed is very old and not development is happening on the Picasa side anymore. Eventually Google Photos might roll out a album embed but they have announced no such plans.

What is the maximum number of pages allowed on a Google Site? From the Google Help document you reference, it states: Pages per site: No set limit (see note below) By thousands, do they mean 1000 or 10000 or somewhere in between?

Google Sites doesn't include a feature to set a page order that is site wide. The order is set on each component, if this is available. The list page gadget doesn't include a way to set a custom order for pages so pages are ordered alphabetically. The straightforward solution is to add the links manually to the page so we will be able to add them in order ...

I don't know the ordering sequence for Google Sites but the basic principle I would suggest is to build in a lot of 'redundancy' from the start, but for convenience in a compact form. Say you have three pages to start with, then something like: E5 M5 V5 and if 26 pages you might use the entire alphabet. The numbers would allow you to slot in five extra ...

That's not possible I'm afraid with the API used. The API that's being used doesn't allow for more (basic) info to be retrieved. There's however a new API released under Google Apps Script that can help you out: Admin SDK Directory Service This allows for much more tweaking !!
