    Balcony issues...

    I'd use that wall type for deck railings and fences. Any wall type can be used as a railing, so here I've used your Stucco-6 wall used on the house, and made it 12" thick.

    Curved Window/Wrought Iron

    Don't really understand what you are trying to do, but here is an idea. I took your image above, tried to make it have a transparent background, made a material from the image, applied it as the glass material for a curved window, then made a symbol of it. Position the symbol in your window.

    Molding offset/origin question

    Bottom left. Easy enough to test for yourself. You want the top of your molding to be at 100". Several ways to do it. Place the molding line at 100" and on the molding panel, check To Top. Molding lines measure from absolute 0.

    Molding offset/origin question

    A molding polyline is just a line. It is where it is. You should be able to measure and then adjust once. Maybe an example of what you are doing would help.
