Tethering

Does the K3-III support tethering in LR like the K-I/II and 645Z, with a USB cable vs WiFi?

According to the specs, via wifi and/or bluetooth.
According to the manual, also via USB as for the K-1.

Having said that, I've never tried connecting my K-1ii to Lightroom directly.

One of the ambassadors (the Korean portrait photographer whose name I’m too lazy to look up now) mentions very briefly in his video that the USB 3.0 tethering to the computer is very fast. He does not, however, talk about if it’s directly to LrC or if he’s using the Image Transmitter software that seems impossible to buy at the moment.

You can download image transmitter direct from Ricoh.

Unfortunately, that's merely an updater. You have to have purchased and installed the original software for it to do anything.

My K-3 Mark3 cannot be connected or invalid connected via tether or Wi-Fi. because, this is just prototype, not complete version.
and currently, Lightroom-plugin from RICOH Imaging web-site is not prepared for K-3 Mark3 yet.

but I'm sure K-3 Mark3 should be available that soon. just wait a time : )
and if that is connected, it will be verrrrrrry fast!

ps. Caution: tether plug-in for Lightroom and ImageTransmitter are different programs.

Is it possible that the same type of workaround that had to be done for DCU5 would work for this? We just need to know what the coded name would be in order to do it.

Nope. The installer checks that the earlier version is already installed on the computer, not that you have the original install media.

I can confirm that the old renaming trick doesnít work, but there are other tricks that do.
The MAC version is a trivial workaround needing just one line code in the Terminal.
The windows one is a bit more involved but possible and needs one of the earlier updates in .MSI format.

Good grief, that workaround is easy on Mac. I figured out which command line tool had to be used and would have even guessed the right way to use it, but I decided to give a quick Google with that command line program's name in it and it turned up a useful post of yours here that confirmed my suspicions. Thanks!
