didn't think of killing Khan’s people in the torpedoes, tossing the torpedoes into the sun/Jupiter, taking the Vengeance and firing the torpedoes at Khan, or anything you can think of.
Getting Kirk to fire the torpedoes at Khan, for example.

sure, he fires Scotty in a moment of anger
No, Scotty insisted on resigning in a moment of anger.

What he doesn’t tell Scotty is to set the phaser to kill
Inconsistent with his earlier decision not to kill him.

Then comes the Enterprise violating Klingon territorial boundaries (despite its orders to stop in the Neutral Zone, unless the Neutral Zone is within Qo’nos/Kronos’ solar system) without being detected by anything.
It's the K'normian trading ship that ends up violating Klingon territorial boundaries, not the Enterprise. According to the dialogue in the film the Enterprise was stopped in the Neutral Zone.

At that point, you’re wondering why Admiral Marcus is so scared about them
Because he's concerned about their overarching potential for interstellar conquest, not their troops' ability to duke it out on the ground against super-augments.
