comment Loading multiple shapefiles from +1000 subfolders
The real question now is, what will go "Not Responding" first, Windows Explorer, or ArcMap?

comment Loading multiple shapefiles from +1000 subfolders
Do you have any experience with the ModelBuilder in ArcGIS? You can simply iterate the folders and grab the files, assuming they have standardized names. Are the shapefiles you want to merge all named something like "WATERBODY.shp"?

comment Looking for more realistic 3D terrain renderer than ESRI Arcscene
Have you tried ArcGIS Pro? I haven't used it for 3D terrain modelling yet, but it's supposed to offer more advanced 3D capabilities (including more options for illumination).

comment Extracting channel banks from DEM and channel newtork
You can try the River Bathymetry Toolkit mentioned in @GBG's answer below. It will do much of what you state above (create a centerline, create cross sections at intervals, extract elevations). Defining the river banks can be much trickier though depending on how variable your water level is.

As far as the River Bathymetry Toolkit goes, you can use it to "flood" an input DEM as a means of estimating the maximum bank height. It will also allow you to detrend the DEM to remove the influence of longitudinal slope (among many other things). Source: was a developer on the RBT.

What type of LiDAR? Green LiDAR would give you bathymetry (penetrating the water surface) - others may be giving you something close to the water surface.

What are your input data? A single DEM? Do you have a water surface raster?

comment ArcGIS Online - Web AppBuilder: Query Widget acts strangely on Android.
As for your first comment about responsiveness - Web AppBuilder still needs some CSS work. Some of the themes are clearly broken. Hopefully Esri will spend some time bug fixing this before the next release (v1.3). I've had to customize the CSS myself a few times in order to make certain themes and widgets responsive for mobile.
