Great post!

Just few notes to add:

1. Caliper bolts are not be reused, probably in your brake pad replacement set there are new ones. Thread locker is to be used.

2. When removing inspect the rubber seals of bolts, and replace if damaged.

3. Brake caliper piston can be pushed back also by: hand by bleeding the brake circuit from the bleeding screw next to the piston itself, or if you don't want to sacrifice any brake fluid and you don't have the "special tool" just use adjustable wood clamp with screw handle and push back the piston

And one piece of advise - do not turn the piston - that damages the seals.
