Plant ID and bug info

Looks like one of the Choysia's. As for sheild bugs they aren't  significant pests for most gardeners.

Ideas for a very shady difficult area.

I think first job is to get rid of the flag stones. I'd go with the shade lovers and woodland plants, it's perfect for them there, a woodland glade effect with some native woodland plants. Maybe a seat at the back as a focal point.

New beds and couch grass

I'd carefully take the plant out of the pot and then tease the couch grass out of the root ball. The roots are easy to distinguish from the plant roots as they are quite thick and fleshy. Then repot them or plant straight out into your raised bed.

It will regrow, but take some cuttings just in case it doesn't survive the move.

What slug trap did you use? Mine are always full of dead slugs.

Well you can take softwood cuttings now, but if it's on your neighbour's side then if they take it out then they have the right to do so. The main rootball will be quite big by now, maybe some negotiation to save it?

Human interference? I don't know of any animal that would cause the damage you describe.
