2. Will raising the end wires to the 15' are improve things?Improve things for NVIS or DX? 80m is the only band of interest, or 80m - 6m?
Again I haven’t modeled it (I will, though) but I’m guessing raising the ends improves the radiation pattern. But it will probably also change SWR.
I think as long as the reflector is the right length and more or less under the antenna it would not make much difference.
