Lily had a submissive peeing problem when we would correct her, she would get upset and leave a stream of pee as she crouched away, but with age and training she seemed to gain the confidence to over come that. She would also do it when we would try training commands so I did allot of that outside until she learned that training was fun and she got rewards for it. I just never made a big deal about it, I just cleaned it up and we went on with our day.
I am also thinking that just ignoring him while you are making food would be better than the pennies in a can thing because if you already have a pup that is submissive peeing that might really make them nervous and scared. I would maybe get the food ready in an area that he cant see you from his crate and then leash and get him to do a calm sit and down before releasing him to eat, I think soon he will connect the dots that if he is going crazy barking then he has to wait longer for food but if he is calm he will get what he wants.
I have never had the problem of my dog trying to play to hard with the older dog but I guess in that situation I would have play time on leash for the pup and if things start to get out of hand I would correct and withdraw her from the situation until she calms down and then repeat after she is calm. As far as walks I did seperate walks with my GSD pup until she was leash trained and knew what was expected of her, it might just be to much for a pup to have the excitement of a walk and all the new things that come with that, learning good leash behavior and be expected to ignore a older dog that already puts her in an excited state.
This is just my opinion and what I would try with Lily. You could also contact a trainer and maybe get into puppy classes and find some fellow class mates who are going through the same things.
