Prior to having Cooper (GSD) who is only 11.5 weeks old now I had a GSDxRotty and he was much the same way with people... he was so social.. But I personally can not stress enough how important it is to socialise your dog with as many people as possible... The fact that your dog loves people/children is great - i dont know how she acts with them but the only thing you need to do is make sure she is good with people
1. Again I'm only new to GSD (pure) but in my experience I would not give her the treat until she showed excitement for the task rather than the frustration you are explaining... Have you tried to either do some training after a quick walk but before breakfast, or perhaps skip a meal and do some training instead (she is going to get the meal, just spread over 20 mins of training :P)
2. Watching a nice old 2006 DVD by Cesar Millan called "Mastering Leadership" could be a good way to see how to control your dog on a lead? It shows ways that you can ensure the dog moves the way you want when on the lead, and how to even make her ignore distractions which are walking past (transferable to other dogs in neighbouring yards etc)
3. ... This one i have no idea.. sorry my dog never chased balls - so i just accepted it :P
