comment On-The-Fly ModelBuilding
So, the output data of your model is a single feature class that represents the analysis' results (buffering). After running the model and exploring the results in ArcMap, you are not satisfied with this and want to re-run the model using another input parameters' values (e.g., another buffer distance). Is it correct? If so, the only thing you need is just to allow the model to overwrite an existing feature class each time it runs. This will not create any additional data.

comment Configure Geoprocessing Service after publishing?
I usually recommend doing that in this way. Create a skeleton Python file which you will turn into a Python script tool in a toolbox. Use sys.path.append to append the folder where all the "meat" py files will be stored. Then just import those files as modules. Place a configuration file (can be .py or any other file) there. This will make it significantly easier to modify the code since you won't need to republish the service (or manually update the published code).

comment Configure Geoprocessing Service after publishing?
You cannot configure any property of a geoprocessing service once it's published from the Manager or ArcGIS Admin Directory. The best approach is to create a configuration file which will be read upon execution of the GP service's task(s).

@lio, as I outlined in my answer, you should contact your local Esri distributor.

comment ArcGIS Server will not start on new amazon EC2 windows instance
Are you on Linux? What version and AMI? Service Packs? Did you authorize the software on a new machine?

comment Adding layer to MXD from different SDE slows down ArcPy script
My initial guess is that there might be something wrong with the SDE database #2. What is your version? Is SDE database #2 located on the same machine as #1? I would test copying the problematic feature classes from the db #2 to db #1 and add the layers to see if the problem is with feature classes themselves.

comment Can I use GPdataFile in modelbuilder so as to use a user uploaded shapefile as input to a ModelBuilder tool?
1. You need an archive with all the shapefile files, right. 2. There is no core support for unpacking .zip files with ModelBuilder, so you need Python. 3. You don't really need a GPDataFile afterwards - you unpack to a temp folder (GP service scratch GDB within arcgisserver folder usually works well) and then you can start executing the code just as if it was working with some local data on your disk.

comment Can I use GPdataFile in modelbuilder so as to use a user uploaded shapefile as input to a ModelBuilder tool?
If it is a file ArcGIS can use directly (a raster file, for instance), then you can use a GP tool that will access the file (stored somewhere on the drive). If it is a .zip file, you would need to incorporate a Python script that will unpack the archive and then return the path to the data you need to the tool in a model. I would abandon the ModelBuilder altogether though and do everything with pure Python and arcpy. So much easier to handle the published resources (code + data if any).

comment Output extent environment is not respected by Select Layer By Attribute (ArcGIS 10.2)
No problem. fc in the code represent the layer name in the TOC. CopyFeatures creates a copy of the feature class drawn as layer and then adds the output to the display.
