I try to keep your enumerated structure yet address the points you edited into the question: (i) I only know of USD OIS referencing the EFFR and the SOFR (ii) My perception is that EFFR als float leg reference is far more liquid at the moment (compare the traded volumes, e.g. https://apps.newyorkfed.org/markets/autorates/fed%20funds vs. https://www.cmegroup....

(Edit 23.11.2020) [Note that my previous derivations were too hasty and had some issues, I will try to amend when time allows. In any case, note that those results were merely model-free: SOFR Futures have convexity adjustments and in practice you will need to specify a model for the forward rates to actually calculate them.

From Pricing and Hedging Swaps by Paul Miron and Philip Swannell: Here I will take the input rates: $r_{1y}$, $r_{2y}$, $r_{3y}$ and create the DF values for each tenor $df_{1y}$, $df_{2y}$, $df_{3y}$, and thus create the zero coupon swap curve rates $z_{1y}$, $z_{2y}$, $z_{3y}$.

Generally, when someone trades an ...

The BenchMark Regulations (applied from the EU reg) require that benchmarks are based on actual transactions, so Sonia changed from being a term rate for overnight published today for tonight, to being an in-arrears rate published tomorrow for tonight. The rate for some date (the index for that day) ...

iii) The OpenGamma piece on IRS market conventions might help. https://quant.opengamma.io/Interest-Rate-Instruments-and-Market-Conventions.pdf [EDIT or USSO2 BGN Curncy DES, for e.g., which provides details on the conventions for each leg] iv) Yes, SOFR/FF basis swaps trade OTC. Or you can trade SOFR futures vs. Fed Funds futures.
