It looks like I'm going to be too busy to put up decent writeups for a while -- apologies. In this case the conundrum was VICEREINE, the female equivalent of a viceroy. My answers:

1. ROTTING
2. FOREDID
3. 578 = 10*50 + 75 + 3 [1 off]
4. HAMMING
5. PIEMEN
6. 344 = 4*100 - 8*(9 - 2)
7. OSCULATES / CASSOULET
8. 848 = (9 - 1)*(100 + 10 - 4)
9. [N/A -- chosen after being presented with VERVECINE]

Considerably after time I found a solution to round 3: 577 = (100/50)*(4*75 - 10) - 3
