    I'd suggest going to some LBS in your area and test ride different road bikes. The biggest problem maybe finding bikes in your size ready to ride, but if they know you are serious about purchasing...

    I'm a fan of the Brooks as well. A slightly cheaper version is the Velo Orange saddles (which I have on both of my bikes).

    I've seen a fitting where basically the person working there eyeballed everything. I'm not sure if that was considered a "professional fitting" but the same things could have been done at home.

    Buy the bike that you will ride. It is not "dumb" to purchase a bike for the reasons you mentioned. It would be dumb to buy a bike and not ride it though.

    I do think a Cross bike would be a good choice given everything you mentioned. I am with others and think you should ride all the cross bikes you can find and decide which one you like best.
