Yes. You should get an editor to hold your hand, or at least your adviser, but I think that is okay. Don't add anything. Be ready to cut at editorial suggestion. But don't freak out because it's 75,000 words, counting the notes.
It sounds beautiful! You have a bouncing baby manuscript! Congrats!
Yes. Remember, shorter is better than longer.
Yup. Everything I've heard and read suggests publishers are very happy with mss that fall in the 60k-80k window, so you're right on target.
Palgrave's limit for the New Middle Ages is 90,000 words, which includes notes and bibliography, but not index. You're golden.
