About your first question :
I trade Dax futures from the UK and have set up the TPO chart to split the profile into day and evening sessions based on 08:00-16:29 and 16:30-07:59 respectively. First of all would this be the correct timing split to use as I am unsure if evening sessions typically include the pre-market hour of the following day?

Correct : your day session will be the cash market session, so 08:00 to 16:29 London time.

You overnight session will begin at 16:30 London time, will end at 7:59.
For many years, the open was one hour before cash open, so 07:00 AM London time, same time as Bund, Eurostoxx indices, and so on.

Then, a couple of years ago, Eurex opened the Dax and company for Singapore trading time, so from 1.10 am London time...
Now you have this akward night session when not much happens...

See : https://www.eurex.com/ex-en/markets/idx/dax/DAX-Futures-139902

You can create some sub sessions in TPO profile to put the 2:10 to 06:59 apart, and another one for 7:00 to 7:59, which really the perdio whan tension builds before the cash opens.
Hope this helps.
