I tested your results with a little python simulation. Will edit your post to include the result. I'd say, you're pretty spot on. Thank you very much. I think I learned a lot just going through your post.

So to get the result for one specific value of n, one first has to calculate it for every smaller value. Ouch! Didn't expect that. Also when $n>0$ there is a probability $>0$ for every value of $h$ even very large ones. That never stops.

And $p_{6,1,5,h\ge2}$ was wrong as well. Either $h-1$ sixes and a five, the probability for which is $\frac{1}{6^h}$, or $h$ sixes and any non hit roll $\rightarrow \frac{1}{6^h} \frac{4}{6}$.
