Plot holes were present with just the first few episodes most of which were never really addressed correctly in the series.
Well I'm not going to try and defend the series I liked it and you have brought up some good points yes, but I have some answers might not be enough but here goes.
3. In the manga during the next arc Gun Gale, it is actually found that Kirito has a unique brain wave pattern apparently, hence why he can go against some of he game mechanics, e.g. Being able to come back after his fight with Heartcliff and standing up to Oberoen GM status, (( before you say its cause he logged on the higher profile I meant how he defied the Gravity Magic part.
5. I dont know what part your talking about here, SAO or ALF but for ALF is was stated that Kirito status from SAO somehow transferred over giving him all his status before and he was already one of the highest players, although this was a mistake so he had to clear his inventory or he might have been caught out.
9. The Clan of Killers you speak actually do come back in the Gun Gale arc, which about a gun that if it kills someone in game, kills them in life. Wont spoil but Members of that Clan are invovled.
The only thing I think best to mention is that the points I have highlighted are found out in the Manga and not the anime. So yes I can understand why you would have these questions as they arent addressed in the anime, but to my knowledge I was under the impression that this was a one off, didnt plan to go too far.
And as to why I loved this, to be honest I do play mmos so I liked seeing an anime of it, also the hole lovey dovey crap I know its supposed to be the big thing about it but did really care more liked the soundtrack and the fight scenes to be perfectly honest. And I didnt so a sit in and watch them all, watched it once a week so dont know if that was a factor.
On that note the animes you recommeded would you say there like .Hack ? Because I have been meaning to watch that anime soon.
