So as interesting as placing the engineroom as seen up where the impulse engine/neck sounds, it doesn't work and causes way more problems than it solves in it's current configuration.

I'm unable to follow.
  • It would relocate the blue corridors "inside" the ship and the saucer where these make better sense

That's not an issue as the blue corridors are straight corridors.

  • It would explain how Kirk and Scotty arrived so quickly at the transporter room

Not an issue. Put the transporter room nearby on the deck below in the engineering hull.

Not an issue since curved corridors were present on the TOS engineering hull.

Not an issue with the engine room already moved back. It does fit (on a 355m hull like the blue corridors.) The blue and silver corridor doesn't fit on a 305m hull.

  • It would not require a rationalization why the TWOK energizer room was miraculously spared from Khan's slicing feast (shifting the warp engine room further to the stern will beg for explanation)

Not really. Even if Khan shot directly at the engine room in the engineering hull on a 305m ship, there is 30' of machinery to blast through which at Khan's low power setting he obviously didn't penetrate far. On a 355m ship at least 36' of space to blast through.

  • It would, last but not least, keep the warp drive engine room exactly where Mr. Probert intended it to be along with the special intermix shaft cover panels on the connecting dorsal pylon.
As pointed out before, that would only work if all the sets were ALTERED or created DIFFERENTLY than as shown on screen. What was made for the movie IS NOT compatible with what Mr. Probert designed (unfortunately.)

All it really takes is either some tolerance towards a few inches or feet of sets a little too wide and/or high (literally nothing compared to the Rec Deck issue) or a slightly bigger ship.
And that's the problem. If you want to build Mr. Probert's ship, I suggest you start your own thread

Did you include the outgoing bright corridor on the starboard side in your figures?
Yes.
