Period. Yes. ...

The simplest thing to do would be to just use the same fragment identifier (link with the # symbol) that you are already using. Is there any reason you can't add that as the link in your bread crumb.

Infinite scroll is not SEO friendly. Google and other search engines will have trouble indexing the content that is not loaded into the page when it is first fetched.

Then, I changed RSS, archive and page url's on my tumblr theme to point to my new domain. Then, I have put this on head section on my theme file: {...

Well I guess this would go on to how the users adapt to your website. I would not recommend regular redesigns because, as you said, people would have to rediscover the site every time and specially in a news website I would guess your demographics are mostly conservative people who like certain things to remain constant.
