I feel it may be due to my feet being just a tad wide for the boot though?

So yeah, discuss please!
So it's a spot problem? You didn't have to rebake the entire skate if that's the case. There are several ways to treat a spot problem: punch, spot heat and stretch. Stretching widens the whole boot, so that might not be a good option. Does your local shop have a puncher?

Thinking about trying a 9' radius with a 30-50 or 35-65, 5/8" sharpening. Would like a bit more turning agility as I'm 35 & don't move my feet as much as I used to (sidestep,crossover etc.), but still would like some good glide, I play forward & can still 'power skate' with a long, strong stride.

Thoughts?
That sounds like a good idea; the CLs come with a factory 10'. I would recommend sticking with your 5/8" as well. Any preference for pitch?
