I always ignore any advice like that unless a clear reason is given at the time.

Having said that, I wouldn't put them in a pot together. Nerines like to get pot bound, undisturbed, daffs don't. Nerines like the hot dry places, daffs don't.

novice, choose some that are 'suitable for naturalising' if they're going in a grass verge. Some fancy ones give up after a few years if they're not split up and given wonderful conditions. February Gold is good

It depends on what you get. Tulips are best planted late. Narcissi and crocus should be fine as well

tree paeony or herbaceous?

Herbaceous, you might as well, it all dies back in winter.

Tree, no, though if it's huge it might help it get established with less to support. If you do cut a tree paeony back do a few stems to the base rather than shortening them all.

I think I'd get on and do it unless you're either flooded or frozen

Not bad for a London garden
