I've actually seen exactly zero impact of fine calibration or how it's performed.

If the metal theory is right then a carbon fiber tripod should help too. Are there any carbon fiber ball heads?

I have never used a tracker. Do you have to be able to see Polaris to align it?
Yes, the device must be aligned on Polaris. The Skytracker has a built in illuminated polar scope. There is a polar alignment app available for most smartphones that you can use to be more precise and reduce cone error.
