Disregard. I figured out my problem. I work from copies of all the sheets so I don't mar them, and apparently there are colored outlines around some of the cells in (ii) which didn't show up in my B&W copy. It all makes sense now.
(ii) took me all weekend to work through.... but I've finally got it. I'm having trouble again connecting (i) and (ii)... which is probably why it took me so long to solve. Now I'm just trying to work through the connections from (v)-(vii) to make sure I've got the right keyword.
I'm afraid that you probably don't have the answer for (i) if you can't connect them, because once you have the right answer for that, (ii) becomes a lot clearer (and can be solved in 30 minutes or so, sorry!)
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
