I've been asked for a boarding pass every time I've visited a lounge over the past year, which has been several dozen trips to Centurion, Priority Pass, and airline clubs.
Cmiiw, from reading the t&c for each network, it seems to me the only lounges you don't need a boarding pass is Airspace. Which doesn't do much goods.

Can any of the lounges be accessed without a boarding pass ?
I am 98% sure I went to an Air Alaska lounge in LAX fairly recently with PP and didn't show a boarding pass. 2% chance I showed the boarding pass.

How long does it typically take for the 50% rebate to be credited back to my MR account after booking F ticket?

Select airline now. You should be fine. If not, chat to apply the credit.
How long does it typically  take for the credit to post? The charge posted but no credit in the horizon yet. :'( It was an MPX charge.

Usually 1-3 days but sometimes up to a week.

In case anyone was wondering, it took 2 days for the rebate points to post.  The MR folks said 6-8 weeks...

Yes at the benifits section of your plat card it shows how much of the credit is still available.
