comment Retrieve password only by login. Users with same email
You shouldn't comment out any lines in wp-login.php, because you should never edit any core files. When you upgrade WordPress all your changes will be overwritten.

comment Adding Shortcode Values to wp_head
You have to accept that this is not what shortcodes are for. They are specifically intended to output something within the body of the post, not in the header, footer, or anywhere else. As others have said, custom fields are your answer in this case.

Unless I misunderstand, it sounds like your 'title graphic' is in effect a second featured image, so could you not use a plugin like Multiple Post Thumbnails? If I've misunderstood, can you explain a bit more clearly what you mean by 'title graphic'?

comment Disable wpautop, keep line breaks
That will work, but it's very rudimentary, so you'll need to be look out for unintended side effects. For example, shortcodes will probably no longer work.

comment Filters on Login Page
That makes no difference. As a couple of other people have noted, the login_form_top filter is not called on wp-login.php. The login_message filter can be used instead.

comment Updating custom fields with data from the database
You've also got a typo in there: your function parameter is called $post_ID, but two lines down you use $post_id. Variable names in PHP are case-sensitive.
