I hit the same road block and couldn't really get the results I was looking for without learning to code against the API. We ended up going with Mango (http://mangomap.com) instead as it has a really good Google style attribute search available.

The best practice for medium to large size datasets is to render them as images on the server and send those images to the client. I build a lot of ...

There is no organized catalog of XYZ tile servers per se. The closest thing is the leaflet-providers project which provides dozens of free basemaps. Code for integrating with leaflet is provided but it should be relatively easy to translate to OpenLayers or other mapping clients.
