I learned how to change the size of hints by modifying fields in the :highlight Hint CSS. I made the hint numbers a bit bigger, and as a result they overlap with the hints they're hinting to. (I'd love to post a picture but apparently I'm not entitled to that luxury yet, so I hope I'm clear enough...)

How can I introduce an offset or some other sort of buffer between the hints and the links themselves?

I don’t think it’s possible. If you look at how the hints are positioned, they get a CSS of position: absolute with fixed, calculated X-Y-coordinates. I don’t think you can add an additional relative offset on top of that.
