7. When you go and cast your vote for Biden

You are not voting for Biden. You are voting for a group of electors that have pledged to vote for Biden in the EC. Likewise, they will cast a separate vote for Harris as VP.

Concerning faithless electors. I think two Clinton electors actually voted for Stein. One of them was punished by the state. A federal suit resulted, with the court ruling the state has a right to punish a faithless elector.
