My main tennis weaknesses right now are volleying (have got big problems finishing the volleys at the net)and serve (low 1st serve percent and 2nd serve is too easy for opponent). Also suffer from some shoulder problems.
Well, maybe you should try to change the grip on the forehand. FOr instance, i play with eastern forehand grip, and generally i hit flat forehands, but it's easy to put topspin if you have to. And for the serve, keep your eyes on the ball and toss the ball high enough, so you won't be rushed into hitting it

BTW, i also sometimes have problems with finishing points with the volley. I construct the point, put my opponent of the court, and then i hit an easy volley out, or worse, in the net

There are a lot of players where the forehand has more spin than the backhand, I dont feel its such a big problem if he can flatten it out in the right hour.

Indoor (and Outdoor) hard. In the summertime clay is also popular. How about you?

Re: Post all your videos of you playing

Here's a video of me hitting some forehands in the Summer of 2008:

I also have clips of backhands and serves but I've improved those shots a lot from the clips taken in 2008, whereas the forehand has always been my strenght and probably the forehands in this clip are close to what they are now (slightly worse though ).
