As for the rough start.. Try leaving the key in the ON position for a second or two before cranking. That will allow the fuel pump to kick on and have a second to build pressure before you start the engine. I had some weird start problems too and once I started doing that it went away. Not sure what causes this but hey it's a pretty simple "fix" if it works.
I always let the fuel pump prime. And I have also tried priming it multiple times before starting it in case pressure is leaving the lines after sitting. The same late start no matter what I do.
Has correct fuel pressure when running I already checked that but still does that. Also has a light ping if I dont use premium so my only guess is one of the injectors is working but not working well.

As far as reverse lights they are clean and ince the vehicle is warm they do come on. So definitely the Nss. I'll try cleaning it first
