comment Can と be used to restate a noun?
「など」 would imply that there are other examples. Does 「と」have the same implication?

comment What does the word 「してやせんっ」mean?
You said「~~してやせん」=「~~してはいない」. I'm not sure this is right. I think 「~~してやせん」 uses the pattern <masu-stem>+はしない: 「~~してやせん」=「~~してる」+「はしない」=「~~してはしない」

comment 「のだろう、」 mid-sentence
I had been interpreting this のだろう in the sense of "she probably thinks she's happier than me", but after reading this comment it sounds more like "I wonder if she thinks she's happier than me" (stream of consciousness: she's actively wondering)

comment 「のだろう、」 mid-sentence
So (3) is providing reasons for the narrator's guess/assumption in (2)? I guess it just seems like there's a missing conjunction of some kind.

But why does the sentence continue after のだろう?

comment Particle の in this sentence
in 注目の試合, 注目 modifies 試合. when you have の, there are many many ways in which the first noun can modify the second noun, and you need to use context to choose the most appropriate interpretation. if you simply think of 注目の試合 as meaning "the match of attention", it's pretty obvious how "attention" is modifying "match"; it means "the match which everybody's attention is on".
