Thanks for mentioning us graystone.
You can read Malwing's review and download Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Merfolk right here at Paizo. It has a number of excellent merfolk options.
In my opinion, the best place to start is with the Book of Heroic Races: Player Races 1. It's chocked full of new balanced races for 5e and has a 5-Star review. If you are interested in adventures, we have a pair that you can find right here. (full disclosure these are from my company)
From there, I would recommend checking out either Frog God Games or Legendary Games. They're both good and worth checking out.

Well it is going to depend greatly on how the city and the people view magic in general, and it is going to vary from city to city.
If the city views magic as:
That's just what I can think of off the time of my head.

One of my players in my Kingmaker campaign
Let me just stop you right there.
First off, let me just say that I love me Kingmaker. My company's early Pathfinder products were directly centered around Kingmaker because I love that campaign that much. I GMed it back in the day.
Having said that, Kingmaker has some serious problems with it. Namely over-reliance on low level monsters well long after they are useful. I had the exact same problem as you and the APG was new when we were playing.
Then there is the fact that the game assumes characters have 4-5 encounters before resting and Kingmaker has an average of 1-2, with only a few exceptions. Take your Sorc/Wiz problem for a moment. he can do that trick many times/day. So the only way for them to be challenged is to give them situations where that cannot be used.
As for converting to 5e, yea, it can make a difference. Its a good game and I highly recommend it myself. But that is a decision you need to talk to the group about.
Fair points all around.
Agreed with everyone else. There is alot less math involved so it is a much easier game to play and run. Adjudicating things are much simpler (forget "does this conditional bonus apply or not", its just advantage or disadvantage). The flatter math of the whole game means monsters stick around longer and a CR 3 encounter is still good when the the players are level 6 without it being a cakewalk encounter.
Forgot to mention earlier, I picked up Book of Beasts: Wandering Monsters, Book of Friends and Foes: Under the Mountain, and Deadly Delves: Reign of Ruin earlier in the sale. (I already own and have enjoyed the Shadowsfall products; I'm a sucker for planar material.) I'm looking forward to reading the Deadly Delve!
Of the ones you picked up, Reign of Ruin is definitely my favorite (and that's saying alot, considering I wrote the other two). Our editor Richard Moore wrote that one and he really did n excellent job on that.

What she said.
Thank you kindly.
What are the best G+ groups?
I recommend D&D 5e (link).
The problem with GiantITP.com for myself and other publishers is that we can't even talk about our own products, even when someone else brings up our products. According to the board's rules, that's against the rules. So I do not spend any time there.
