question relating to the Reese srping bars and their set up, the part you attach the chains to and flip up...they have holes thru them for a pin...linch pin I guess? Is this necessary to keep these secured at the top of the tongue bars...I went looking for some 1/4" by 2 1/2 or so today to fit but have not yet gotten any.

The answer is yes. When turning tightly, one chain pulls outward on the tip-up and, without a keeper, it would be very easy for it to spring loose.

Virtually any hardware store should have the spring pins. You don't need a heavy pin ... the lighter the pin, the easier to snap in and out.

I agree with you on this. Those chocks spread the preassure out enough to not damage the tire under normal use. You don't have to "Mash" the tires to get the desired effect.
