comment A Question About the Suffix さ
I think you're right, though perhaps the problem is in how "noun" is defined. Some definitions center around appearing before the copula だ, which I think goes back to Bernard Bloch, but I think a better definition would include (for example) the possibility of functioning as subject or object.

comment Do 見える - 見せる come from 見る?
You're mixing up derivation and inflection. They're derived from 見る historically but are now lexical words. They aren't inflectional forms of 見る.

comment Can an adjective modify a na-adjective?
That's okay. It looks like an answer will have to address your notion of adjective anyway, so we might as well leave that part of the question the way it is :-)

comment Can an adjective modify a na-adjective?
言い知れぬ isn't a 形容詞—see how it doesn't end in い? It's a negative verb form (or according to some dictionaries a 連体詞 derived from a negative verb form).

comment What is the formal way to say “しょっちゅう”?
@natlang よく is sometimes used in formal documents in certain meanings of the word. Here's a random example: 「事象叙述と属性叙述の違いはこれまでも、海外では状態述語における stage-level predicates(場面レベル述語)と individual-level predicates(個体レベル述語)の区別(Carlson 1980、 Krifka et al. 1995)として形式意味論でよく知られており、また、我が国では佐久間(1941)の示唆を発展させた益岡(1987,2004)、益岡(編)(2008)で叙述の‌​類型として論じられているが、その区別が統語構造と形態構造の「形」にどのような影響をもたらすかという問題はほとんど手がつけられていない。」 (Source) But this isn't the same use of よく you're asking about.
