"Is "Warp Engine Room aft" the same as "in the saucer"? Because that's the only place the "The Ultimate Computer" engine room fit can be due to that long curving hallway they used so prominently in the episode. That would put at least one Season 2 style engine room in the primary hull."
No, not necessarily. I addressed the issue of reducing corridor radius in theory # 4 in the introduction to my parallel thread: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=195496
If you're adjusting the radius then you probably won't have any issues.

Add to this we have seen circular corridors in the engineering hull in "Dagger of the Mind", "The Doomsday Machine", "Mudd's Women" and "The Enemy Within"), therefore it has to be equally possible to have the corridor leading to the engineering room in "The Ultimate Computer" in the engineering hull, too.
Well yes and no. The big difference between those episodes and "The Ultimate Computer" is the long continuous tracking shot down that corridor. The other episodes show segments of the corridor at a time.
