If I'm remembering my millinery correctly, the thinner brim style is a trilby; fedoras have a wider brim—example here.

Huh, I didn't realize that either. I looked it up, apparently if you share a drink with him at one point in ME3 he can become a love interest for male Shepard, I guess I missed that knowledge cause I always play a female Shepard.
Yeah, a friend of mine specifically picked up the ME series once Kaidan was a romance option for mShep for ME3. (The fact that there is a severe lack of gay romance options for mShep in ME1 and ME2 is...disheartening to say the least. I have a rant on this particular topic, but I'll save it for later, as it's not terribly cohesive and mostly incoherent grousing.)
If you want to know what the boundaries are 100% and for sure, consult a lawyer. The Compatibility License is legally binding, and if you're seeking clarification on it, I can't provide it., as I am not a lawyer.
However, in the examples you've provided: Definitely No (color changed), No (not what is provided), Definitely No (color changed), Likely Not (the width of the bottom bar is out of proportion), and Likely Not (width of bar out of proportion). The license is pretty clear on this: do not alter color, designs, or proportions (which all of those do).
Again, if you want a definitive interpretation of the license, consult a lawyer.
I just saw the bit of texture they added to the banner, and I was wondering if that was cool, or if it pushed the boundaries of what you the license described. Because if it's okay to keep the shapes and colors, but add a tiny bit of texture to the banner, I can make the cover look a bit nicer.
The long wrap-around banner is not part of the logo.
Also, it has a screwed up Aspect Ratio on the logo. I imagine it was by accident, but it's definitely an alteration of the proportions.
Had the publisher submitted their product to us as required by the Pathfinder Compatibility License, this is something that I would have pointed out to them.
So, out of curiosity: Are we allowed to add textures to blend it in with the cover/make it look better a little bit?
Per Exhibit A of the Pathfinder Compatibility License:
You may not alter the color, typography, design, or proportions of the Compatibility Logo, although you may render it in black and white in situations where color is not available. You may not allow the Compatibility Logo to be obscured in any way.
As long as you stick to those guidelines, you should be fine.
