You are working in Coulomb gauge, which is non-standard in radiation problems, so it's a little difficult for me to give you an in-depth analysis of your claims, but I can point out some preliminary mistakes straight away. Firstly, your assumption that the grad and curl terms fall off faster than $1/r^2$ is not a valid assumption in the time-dependent case. ...


Firstly, I think you've confused several points in your analysis of the situation. Working with the first picture, by standard electrostatic analysis, we see that there must be a standard Coulomb force between the plates for all times $t\ge t_2$, not just at $t=t_2$. This point is not too important, but I thought I'd mention it. Continuing to work with the ...
