I agree it would be very nice to have a separation of state and national units.
I do think many of your other suggestions fall into the category of interpretation of historical realities and numbers, and so are debatable. This game does provide a much higher production system to the CSA than it had historically, but this is well handled to provide a decent game balance.
I had not thought about leader numbers/limits. I am thinking and perhaps will be rethinking, but the CSA has an abundance of 3 star leaders. They are just more of a challenge to manange, as opposed to the Union leaders who are a bit easier to manage. But there is never a shortage of essential three stars.
I do think your suggestion have merit and ought to be considered.
Agree that the leaders should be revised, McCulloch is just one but there are many more.
In the orginal AACW game CSA could promote for example Stuart and Forrest to *** rank, this was removed from CW2.
Was the reason to prevent using them as infantry commanders?
Both showed potential to infantry command also in RL and in comparison Union gets a *** Sheridan.
Cleburne was also removed from that list of potential army commanders yet he had an strategic mind and sound judgement for the job.
Strategic rating is the key for army command and CSA was culled for CW2 in this regard, those that remain promotable are the ones that get negative traits.
Jackson gets the quickly angered trait, Bragg gets the dispirited leader and arrogant traits and Hood gets dispirited leader and hothead traits.
In comparison Union gets for example these potential *** commanders ported over from AACW:
(None of them have negative traits; many have positive)
Jackson, Bragg and Hood might deserve negative traits bur arguments can be made to their effects and their overall rating compared to the Union leaders above.
Here on Hood for example.

In current state the leadership is unbalanced in favor of the Union.
