No. Most of them differ in their face angles. Menkaure's is the closest angle to Khufu's: [sites.math.washington.edu]

Not sure. I don't recall Step having any, but I might be wrong about that. And I don't see how the casings could be installed from top to bottom, although they certainly could have been finished/polished from top to bottom.

There's no way to know with certainty how much time expired bewteen the construction of each pyramid. I'm also disinclined to embrace the notion that any "pharaoh" commissioned the construction of any of them. Why each has its own design is up for grabs. One thing I'm pretty certain about is that none of them were designed with security mechanisms that were intended to keep humans out. I believe that the so-called portcullis stones, "prism" stones, Granite Plugs, etc., were not designed to be security mechanisms but rather were intended to provide a different function for the structure.

I really don't think dead lifting is a rational explanation. I think the most credible method is that they used water in conjunction with a counterweight system such as the funicular which is why I like your system. I admit, though, that I don't accept the traditional timeline. I don't see any evidence that the Dynastics had the wherewithall to achieve that kind of work. As I've said many times, I think it's very likely that the Dynastic culture with its funerary context was layered over structures that were already ancient by the 3rd millennium BC.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
