Update: I originally thought You don't need Applescript to do this. And you could create a Smart Group that does it for you. BUT the 'Company: is set' is not for the checkbox. Its for the actual Company text field. So you cannot use the above for this as it does not care if the checkbox for company is ticked or not. It only cares if there is ...

It shouldn't make your system unstable since it runs in its own "box" per se.. I have done it for other operating systems such as Ubuntu, Windows, and older versions of OS X.

You can buy the ML from App store. Then install it on USB following these instructions from Apple-HT202796. Then hold the Option key during boot to select the start up disk. How ever, running from USB disk can be slow. Alternative->better solution is to create a new partition (size to be determined) and install the ML on it, if you are using the ML ...

Sure. Create a Keyboard Maestro macro that runs when the app launches and runs an AppleScript to turn DND on. Then create another one for when the app quits which runs another AppleScript to turn DND off.

In my opinion, Time Machine is the best solution. If you do a full restore from backup, all your configurations are retained. You'll need to enable FileVault after the restore is finished.
