Same as above. Go for it. Nothing wrong with that.

Yes.

Probably because the registration plate has absolutely nothing to do with a WoF.

Lights are a little different - there are prescribed positions and angles of visibility. Here they are:

Plates are now required to be horizontally mounted, this has been the case since last year when a number of rules were changed or clarified re the display of plates. As long as its mounted and illuminated correctly on the guard and isn't an external projection that could be a danger to cyclists or pedestrians, no problem.

So long as the number plate light is also on the guard with the plate then yes

doesnt it have to be seen within a certain angle on both sides of trailer at the back! to get a wof
so in that case no its not legal to have it on a trailer guard

No, there is no angle requirement for the registration plate illumination lamp as there is for stop lamps.
