Hello.

For the description changes, I would try by redefining the properties in the file alfresco-repository/workflow-messages.properties at master · Alfresco/alfresco-repository · GitHub 

In order to reorder the form fields, you have to change the form definitions for the workflows you want to change. The ootb config is here share/share-workflow-form-config.xml at develop · Alfresco/share · GitHub 

And to hide the workflows, you can add a section like the one below into your share-config-custom.xml file:

<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Workflow">
    <hidden-workflows>
        <workflow name="activiti$activitiParallelGroupReview"/>
        <workflow name="activiti$activitiParallelReview"/>
        <workflow name="activiti$activitiReview"/>
        <workflow name="activiti$activitiReviewPooled"/>
    </hidden-workflows>
</config>

I do not have the answer for the "Check by default" for email notification though.
