Any of the former questions but with the Silmaril Bells
Nervousness, stability of romantic relationship, willingness to be characterized as supervillain?

Stability of romantic relationship, low to high, note that "low" is not very low:

Gem&Joy
Kib (+ Aydanci)
Cam&Loki
Golden&Edward

Willingness to be characterized as supervillains, low to high:

Boots
Gem, Iobel

Approximately how far is Cam from T’Mir from the rest?

I mean, T'Mir did go around breaking the prime directive a lot. In many people's minds in the Federation this is genocide-flavored. There's a decent size gap between her and Golden but Golden runs a vampire shadow government, so, like, she's not expecting a squeaky clean reputation beyond reproach either.

Silmaril Bells: happiness? suitedness to wield an infinity stone? how distressed they would be if there was a breakdown in interdimensional transit a la the ones that keep happening in effulgence?

Happiness (current), greatest to least:

Iobel, T'Mir
Loki, Gem
Boots, Kib, Golden, {Butterfly}
Cam

Suitedness to wield an infinity stone:

Loki (Space, Time, Reality, Power, in that order)
Gem (Time, Reality, Power)
Boots (Mind, Soul)
Cam (Power, Soul)
Kib (Reality)
T'Mir (Mind), Golden (Mind, Power)
Iobel, {Butterfly} (none)

Distress at transit breakdown (assuming they are home at the time), most to least:

Kib
Loki
Boots, {Butterfly}
Cam, Gem
Iobel
T'Mir
Golden

How about assuming they are not home? Or is that too dependent on which universe they're in? Does any of that change if there is known time fuckery à la effulgence?

I imagine the distress would be partly caused by the likelihood of any given technology breaking? Like, no insult to the Fëanors, but I expect the Tesseract is more reliable than the worldleapers; the Tesseract breaking would be a much bigger cause of distress all else being equal.

Too dependent on where they're stuck. Timefuckery makes it worse but probably doesn't affect the order or at least not very much. It's mostly based on how much they rely on/care about access to people and stuff in other worlds, but Loki is indeed partly that high because of Tesseract-related implications.

Huh. The Tesseract mentioned that the Mind and Soul stones would be extremely incompatible with Loki due to creepy personal conflict reasons - I had assumed that would extend to all Bells. I don't think we ever got any more details were given, but given the stones involved I guessed it involved their domains, i.e. they would violently clash with the standard Bell aversion to mind-reading and otherwise editing people without consent. Which is a fairly intractable feature of Bells. I could see Boots being more suited to wielding them than any of the others, just because she's more used to tolerating horrible things for the sake of not dying pointlessly, but I wouldn't have guessed she'd rank as good.

Do you feel like giving more details, perchance? Am I just wrong about what the likely source of conflict between Loki and the Mind/Soul stones was?
