1)  What files have to be copied out of a custom gallery (when the Libre
installation already has multiple Galleries installed) so the gallery can
be transferred AS IS.

Look for files in gallery subdirectory in user directory (see answer below).

These files are some binary format unknown to libmagic. It seems that sdv file 
contains metadata (gallery name etc.) while thm file contains thumbnails (to 
display in LO). There is also sdg file which purpose is unknown to me.

I have made simple test that showed, that LO stores only information about file 
in filesystem hierarchy, not file content itself. Unless there is way to change 
that (which I don't know), your task to provide unified galleries for users 
will be very challenging.

2)  How can galleries created on an installation of Ubuntu Linux be
transferred to a Mac, or a Mac to Ubuntu (or Windows to....  etc.).

LibreOffice stores information in user directory. You will find it in:

- Windows: %APPDATA%\LibreOffice\3\user\
- Linux: ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/ (note: for LO 3.4.x and earlier it was
- Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/libreoffice/3/user/

3)  Where does one add custom fonts to L.O. ?  There doesn't seem to be a
fonts path that I can find.  (We use over a hundred different ones and some
of our people are on shared machines so installing that many fonts into the
system of a one machine:many user environment we are trying to avoid.)

I have "fonts" directory in /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/ (which is something like 
global user directory). Perhaps you can simply create "fonts" dir in user 
directory and drop font files there.
But I have not checked. I prefer to put font files into ~/.fonts/, where they 
are accessible for all programs (but not all users).
