As far as tuning, I have trouble playing a super tight snare quietly.
I'd also probably argue that using something like an Ambassador/G1 batter would require less force for the drum to open up and resonate than like a 2 ply batter.

Have you thought about maybe making tip caps for your sticks out of surgical tubing?
And using jazz tapered sticks?

I can play softly on the drums and the hats and the ride. Crashes are another matter. All crashes require a minimum force to...well...crash. So they need to match whatever volume the drummer is playing. Peace and goodwill.
