    This opening isn't as bad as I first assumed, although in my opinion, it is still better to play the standard openings.

    This is perfectly fine to play. The main ideas are to control the dark squares with e3 and Nf3, as well as to put a rook on a nice semi-open file and to finachetto the queenside bishop. I don't think it gives white much of an advantage, though, so I prefer the Dutch Defense.

    This can be nice to incorporate/transpose from a 1.b3 opening

    This opening is seriously really weak. It is basically surrendering f2 to black and letting him attack your exposed kingside.

    this is weak because every pawn move is a hole and especially if you plan on castling kingside that f2 hole can be used as easy attacking spot

    The point of this opening is white to take control of the dark squares, while black takes control of the white squares

    Eventually, white's light square bishop won't be that important and will eventually be sacrificed for either black's knight or light square bishop

    I mean, if white plays g4. why would they do that?

    I find f4 pretty good maybe the best after d4 e4 c4 Nf4 and g3. But it´s all a matter of taste if you like the positions you get from 1 f4 play it.
