comment Is けど a 接続詞 (conjunction) or 助詞 (particle)?
Dictionaries list けど as both a 接続助詞 and as a 接続詞, depending on whether it's following a clause or beginning a sentence. Some list it as a 終助詞 as well.

comment What's the difference between ~れれば and ~れば?
@ThomasGross You're presenting a modern analysis, while Choko has shown how it's analyzed in Japanese school grammar. Descriptively they work out to the same thing in this case, although the modern analysis is probably more parsimonious.

comment If 「は」 marks a topic, and 「が」 marks a subject, what does 「です」 do in terms of nuance?
です is not shortened from である (although だ is). The exact etymology of です isn't known, but you can think of it as short for であります.
