comment Are folding handlebars a good idea from an engineering standpoint?
I'm very curious about what the OP means by "engineering standpoint" because there are multiple considerations - cost, failure modes, weight, aesthetics/customer perception, complexity of operation, legal liability, probably others. I don't see that it's necessarily weaker than a traditional handlebar, and I've broken 3 or 4 of those (one with the "assistance" of a motor vehicle)

comment Can you have too many in line barrel adjusters?
The issues is more when they're on bends, as they don't tend to be good at holding the cable straight so you get a kink in the cable which both impedes movement and wears things prematurely. But on a straight cable they should be fine, even if you line up 10 of them. Note that the cable is always in tension, so there's no hysteresis to worry about

@SeldomNeedy I interpret that as "there are no owners residing", viz it's all tenants.

This would be better as a comment, since you're really asking for clarification, but you don';t have enough rep for that.

This doesn't answer the question. Can you edit in specifics about whether the 9 speed 105 derailleur will work with an 11 speed shifter and cassette please.
