comment $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{2+\sqrt{2}})$ is Galois over $\mathbb{Q}$?
Have you tried computing the minimal polynomial for $\sqrt{2+\sqrt{2}}$?

comment A question regarding Kummer
I don't understand your question, and I honestly don't know the history of algebraic number theory, so I'm not sure whether ideal class groups originated with Kummer. But Kummer's example of failure of unique factorization is frequently the example used to motivate ideal class groups.

comment Finitely generated algebra as a module over a subalgebra
Two polynomials (in $f_3$) are equal if and only if all of their coefficients are equal, so this is immediate.

comment The mod $p$ Galois representation of the Frey curve is unramified away from $2, p$
The one-line "intuitive" answer to your question is that the primes dividing the discriminant are those for which the curve has bad reduction, i.e. reducing modulo those primes yields a singular curve over a finite field, so we expect bad things to happen at such primes. Where the curve is smooth, we expect everything to be nicely behaved.
