Not sure what would be best, might need to just experiment and see which works best for what you are trying to accomplish.

You could set it to manual focus in the settings and then pre-focus but you will be stuck with a particular focus point. You could also use aperture priority mode and set it to the highest aperture number for the greatest depth of field but your focus still might shift. Its a real problem because the camera isnt really smart enough to know what it is you want to focus on.

Using High speed sync will cut flash power by up to 50%, adding a second speedlight will get you back to about full power.

Going from 1 light to 2 lights doubles the output (increase of 1 stop). To double again you need 4, then 8.

I have never heard of Serif MoviePlus so I cant really help you there. You might want to look at Adobe Premiere Elements. H264 is an industry standard and YouTube's preferred format. When you say "jerky videos" are you referring to camera shake or stuttering on playback?

I would tend to shoot that at 60p - 1/120th shutter speed. But still, it its moving you are better to try to pan with the train to grab the detail of it. If the object would be blurry in a still at 1/50th than its going to be blurry in video.

Are you going right from the camera to YouTube? If so, don't do that. You need to edit the videos and them save them in H264 format for best results.

Straws give a tighter light pattern. Go without for a softer spread.
