Every indication seems to be that to the builders "the Boat of the Sun" was the pyramid itself. The king was the star and the boat and the boat sailed north to the imperishable stars where lay his other mnemonic. There is significant evidence for this beyond merely the Pyramid Texts which records the ritual that relate to the king's ascension to become the star and pyramid by means of the eye (of horus). Even the tiny little crews that lived in the tiny little village were named after parts of the boats they were building.

Yes and no.
Celestial legend is merely a confusion of ancient history. Some is likely spot on when taken literally but for the main part legend will be equally or more confused than modern language itself.

It's possible we can deduce which star is the mnemonic for "s3h" mathematically but I doubt we have enough data at this time. If the data is found it will probably just "state" which star represents him.
I believe the processes you use to try to understand the Egyptians is legitimate enough but I simply doubt it will yield results in this instance. "S3h" was the first homo sapien and the best known but was much more a "legend" than an historic figure 40,000 years later when the pyramids were built. Of course being central to their thinking it might make your process more effective rather than less. As with most things I just don't know.
