You can create a low-numbered user via dscl, as per this Apple support page and it will be hidden from most views. Also, I believe that if you set the user home directory to something like /var/empty then ssh will log in but the gui will not.

For me, I had to go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy. On the left, click on Accessibility, then on the right side uncheck every checkbox. This resolves the problem.

About the closest thing that could reasonably be expected to the iPhone being "hacked" would be the thief guessing the passcode, and since you said you have a strong passcode, that probably won't happen. Because of this, you may as well hold off on wiping it; if the thief ever turns it back on you will see it in Find My iPhone and may have a chance of ...

Perhaps you mean 1Password by AgileBits? If so I can answer that as a happy user of 1Password that you can't. Migrating or syncing passwords from/with the keychain is as far as I know, not strictly possible.

Manually enter your username and password. Tap "Passwords" right above your keyboard. Tap "Save This Password." It still won't autofill when you first load the page, but now you can tap in the username field and hit "Autofill Password."
