And you keep not getting the point about how Active Directory actually works.

comment Active Directory, create user just for adding computers to the domain
A startup script would act on a COMPUTER, not on an USER ACCOUNT. Permissions act on OUs and the objects they contain. GPOs act on COMPUTERS by changing which right someone has on them. Security rights are granted to GROUPS, not OUs. You can of course do anything you want, you could theoretically query AD to look up user accounts in a given OU and do something for/on/with them; but that would be an excruciatingly unusual and awful way to manage your domain.

comment Active Directory, create user just for adding computers to the domain
Note: while it's true that GPOs can influence user rights, they usually do this by affecting the computers they are applied to; the actual position in the directory of the user account to which they are granting something is completely irrelevant. A user account will never "get rights assigned by group policy" based on its AD location.

comment Static Route for Windows
NAT =/= routing. With NAT, your "internal" clients can talk to the "external" router, but the router can't talk to the client, because it can't even properly address them. If you need NAT, that's strictly monodirectional.

comment Static Route for Windows
Are you sure you didn't enable NAT? That would let traffic flow only in one direction (from LAN to WAN), not allowing the reverse. You should configure the server only as a router, without any NAT.
