You'd have to ask the designers and developers of SO for the definitive answer. My guesses: the overall framework of this site isn't terribly new. It was built prior to the era of responsive web design. I think we could safely assume a future redesign may accommodate that. while full-screen can be great for reading code, it's terrible for reading text. ...

Reading text requires your eyes to jump from line end to next line start. If the text column is too wide, it gets difficult to keep the line. I don't have online citations about studies or textbooks, but googling "easy read layout" already turns up recommendations to not exceed 100 chars (webdesignfromscratch.com).

Sounds like you need to sketch this out with pencil and paper, or paper cutouts, or whiteboard. As far as images being place left/right/center - we can't say one is better than another. It depends many factors and I suspect aesthetics might be the driving one. Note that the location of the images will be harder to change later on, while all the spacing and ...

I would eyeball it. Maybe start around 75-80% of the body font size. How small you can go depends on the font. Note that you should honor the users' font size browser settings, hence don't assume all users will be viewing the same size font that you are seeing. I would not use italics for captions (reserve italics for what they're traditionally used for), ...
