Looks like you posted this question in the Community Canvas area which is where we have discussions about improving the forums themselves. I've gone ahead and moved this to the actual Forums since it will be get seen by more eyes there.
1. Sounds possible to me, but I'm not exactly sure what the question was. It seems that you want one filter to apply to all sheets and another to apply only to 2 sheets. In v8 you can specify how a Filter is applied -- (1) to only this worksheet, (2) selected worksheets, (3) to all worksheets using this data source. It seem you want #3 (all) for the date, and #2 (some) for the two worksheets with "Delivered".
2. I think so. You a Parameter is Global, in that it is applied to any worksheet that contains a filter related to it. For example, create a Calculation that is related to your Parameter (maybe if INDEX() < Parameter then 'Show' else 'Hide'). Then add that calculation to any worksheet that you want the Parameter to be applied to. Check out the free on emand training videos here (look for Parameter video): Training & Tutorials | Tableau Software
3. You can send a "Packaged Workbook" to the client and they can open it with the free "Tableau Reader" software.

To clarify #3, once a dashboard with all your sheets is assembled, you can right click on the individual sheet tabs to "hide" the sheets and only keep the dashboard tab displaying. Then, you can share "only the dashboard"--although the sheets will still be accessible by end users that have Tableau Desktop installed.
For the rest of your questions, a packaged workbook (.twbx) demonstrating your data structure as well as a description of what you'd like as an end-result would be most beneficial in assuring you get the help you need here.
Thank you Dustin!!
Thank you Jason & Lutton for your kind help. I will go ahead with the suggestions mentioned in your posts and get back to you if I get strukup in any area.
