Unfortunately as Facebook only allows deep linking this isn't possible as far as I am aware. The only way to do something like this is to add a link in your page description which shows in the sidebar.
From an SEO point of view it won't make a difference unless the link is classed as link spamming, in other words the page you are linking to does not have anything to do with the current page (or the product you are linking to does not have anything to do with the page).

A terrible idea. Unless the URL is rel="nofollow" and has a really important reason to be in your top of page navigation. Follow up: Part of ranking is the choice of quality/authority OUTBOUND links.

The external links if any would help your site rather than harm it in any way.

Wait until Googlebot has recrawled all the pages with faulty HTML and all the bad links that those pages might have generated. NOARCHIVE prevents Google from ...

Firstly metric-wise, don't worry that a domain has a low Moz domain authority that ...
Please take a look at this image: Most of these are links from my clients, but also from some web-catalogues that automatically adds links to your site. I do not think that is a bad situation and you should be worried.
