It you get tapered wear issues (coning of the pads and rotor) it's because the caper is flexing when hot...not much you can do without cooling or a stiffer system.
Interesting, I have never observed this. How would you explain this phenomenon? I have always assumed that the brake system force distribution left to right would be equal regardless of tire grip (unless ABS is invoked) thus balancing wear on both sides. Is your assumption related to DBC?
