Regards 1)

The Sidebar was not imported from IBM Symphony. It was implemented by devs on
the Apache OpenOffice project as the Sidebar, and then extensively modified to
use GTK+ Glade UI layout for LibreOffice releases since 4.1.0

In course of developing Sidebar, the Styles and Formatting dialog was disabled,
and Styles are now only available in the Sidebar container. Or minimally from
the Formatting toolbar.

You mention cmd+T, so we'll assume that places you on an OS X system? 

F11 is the control used by LibreOffice / AOO / OOo to launch the Styles and
Formatting dialog--and now Sidebar.  But the Customize dialog is provided to
assign any key to the function.

At present the Sidebar is monolithic, it can be docked or undocked, but there
is no way to open the individual content panels in decks of their own. That is
bug 85905, going to set this a duplicate of that. 

Regards 2) 

at 5.0.0 the Show/Hide Sidebar button was reworked per bug 83527, in flattening
the "grip" the color agreed on in the design process was the "DarkShadowColor"
of the active Desktop Environment, while changing to a light blue when

Thanks we're pretty focused as it is, but annotated mock-ups of specific issues
might be a bit more helpful. Please submit well researched issues to the
ux-advise component.
