Of course new ones will be lighter. I mean for: "primary use is for commuting and hitting potholes (I'm 170 pounds), and secondary use will be bike trails with the kiddo", nothing about that usage...

I don't know anything about fenders so i won't comment there. But as far as the tires go, yeah switch them out. Keep the current wheels, new wheels won't gain you anything for your type of riding.

The 42s will fit. I'd get a nice set of wheels and use them for your recreational riding and use the stock setup for commuting.

43mm is as big as would put in the rear. While technically a 45mm would probably fit it will be very tight and leave no room for error. The extra 1mm on each side isn't worth it in my opinion.

That's likely just a spacer for adapting between different rotor sizes. Install the wheel/rotor, install the brake caliper, and if it fits you don't need an adapter. It won't hurt to try.

Way to pick out the two outliers in the gravel bike market that 99% of us could never afford when I was clearly generalizing... in a Jamis Renegade thread. *slow clap*

I think you answered your own question but the lower end Renegades aren't what I would call "lively." They aren't slugs but they aren't CX or Road bikes either.
