    pls review this plan and what T to use for vents?

    Replacing 15/16 kitchen faucet aerator with swivel aerator.

    you need to remove the existing aerator. you are correct that is a internal/external thread to match different faucets. once you take that off you should be able to attach the spray head you want. they usually come with different adapters for different style faucets.

    Tub water won't fully turn off on unique/old system.

    i would try it on the least used tub first in case you have any issues. its all threaded connections so worst case you could replace with modern chrome threaded fittings and valves. look on home depot or lowes or plumbers supply house
