When doing a search for rooms over Shavuos Hilton shows no availability online but when logged in as a diamond it shows a room at the 80,000 level as a special diamond rate/availability.

Can this availability be booked with certs?

Call them, you have to call to book with certs anyways.

I'm new to this. I am thinking about getting a citi reserve to get the voucher for two free nights. Can this be combined with the fifth night free?  How should I work it?

No, I used the weekends certs on a weekday to accommodate 5th night free.

When you get the 5th night free what they really do is discount all 5 nights by 20%, which is 64k per night.
When you are using certs they just don't charge the 64k for the cert nights, so it devalues the certs a little.

If you book 5 nights it will be 64k per night.
You can apply the certs for 2 of the weekend nights and pay 192k points for the other 3 nights.

I thought those certs can be used whenever there's standard room availability?

Whenever there is Superior room available for sale, you can get it with a cert.

Trying to evaluate risk, so to say, of applying for citi card now to use certs in August... any idea how likely it is that there will be no availability left by the time I get those, assuming I meet spending fairly quickly?

The Waldorf has significantly good award availability even close-in.
