comment If and how to break a long wizard into main steps and substeps?
I would question the assumption that an accordion "makes the length of the wizard feel shorter, as questions are all presented on one page." Presenting questions piece-by-piece as in a tabbed wizard can make the process seem less burdensome, and also submitting the first step in a tabbed wizard creates a sense of commitment to the process (resulting in decreased abandonment). See The Secret Objectives of Queues - the point "It commits guests to the attraction".

comment When the user is inputting large numbers what can I do to reduce errors?
For option 1, you could use a plugin like digitalbush.com/projects/masked-input-plugin to format the value with commas.

comment What techniques can I use to wireframe sites with responsive/fluid layouts?
@DanielNewman Dang, seems they're no longer available, and I can't find them elsewhere with a quick search. I'll delete my earlier comment to avoid further confusion. If you're really interested in tracking them down, maybe you could find out who owns burke.hotgloo.com and reach out - I don't recall the designer's full name. Keep me posted if you find them.
