But as far as I know has Linux no way to run device link style conversions like the above mentioned LUT directly on a display. One could use a XCM compatible colour server together with the xcm tool.

Okay, so apparently this is kind of implemented already. One just has to say xinput set-prop <device-id> "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 1 (I wonder why it almost worked without).

I'll give a generic answer here, because other people might be struggling to setup X forwarding on a Mac here. I think in your specific case, try to run ssh from XQuarts instead of running it from the terminal. Also make sure you have XForwarding set on the serverside and restart sshd after adjusting it.

This depends on a combination of your window manager and what the app itself provides. Some apps support some for of -geometry WxH+X+Y.
