    Gsus4 = G C D
    Fsus4 = F Bb C
    F/C = C F A (C)

    The "scale" could be F major or Bb major. That includes their relative minors, of course (D minor or G minor), as well as their other modes.

    Chords take their names from their most significant intervals, as measured from the root.

    From one chord tone to another. So (with given chords and a flexible melody) - in your example - instead of the first two C's you could have C-B going down to the A. B is a non-chord tone passing...

    Bar 1: F or Dm7 - because all 3 melody notes are contained in both those chords

    Bar 2: More debatable. The chord tones are all contained in an Fmaj9 chord (or Dm11), but it may better to havea...

    It could be written better IMO. I don't like the dotted crotchet crossing beat 3 - it would be better as a crotchet tied to a quaver. The timing of the slide is not clear either.

    Yes.

    I-bVII-IV is mixolydian (provided I really does sound like I, otherwise the whole thing is really V-IV-I), but the others are rock conventions which, as you say, "don't follow any specific...
