If box leaved lonicera is L. pileata I think it could be kept small enough, if it's nitida It might be more rampant. I think either of them would need clipping more often than box if it wasn't to get straggly

I've seen euonymus used. The smaller leaves ones are quite box like

silver birch leaf problem

I wonder if that's some sort of leaf miner, it looks as though the inside green bits have gone but the outside is still intact. I doubt if the fly is doing it but its larvae might be.

Might be worth looking at the Forestry commission site, they have a pests and diseases section, or they did have when I last looked.
