I can't speak about the other issues, but when running dvips I
generally find it useful to use the -G0 option to avoid some encoding
problems. The "NSF Fastlane" (if you don't know what that is, don't
worry) guidelines on producing PDF also suggest the following arguments
-dMaxSubsetPct=100 -dCompatibilityLevel=1.3 -dSubsetFonts=true
-dEmbe dAllFonts=true -r2400
(Those guidelines are very good at producing very portable PDF.)
