comment What´s the importance of the normalization of the Kinetic term?
Thanks, I'll have to check that keeping $\hbar$ around. I included some comments in the question.

comment Ward Takahashi identities from Z invariance
I understand what you are saying, that's what you do when writing supersymmetric models in terms of 2-spinors. But these are usual 4-component Dirac spinors and their sources. I never seen their scalar product defined in any other way than just the sum of the product of their components. In fact this seems to indicate just that.

Thanks for point out the mistakes - I corrected them in the question. As for your answer: does it have to do with the $\langle p | \phi | 0 \rangle $ that appears when you are building the LSZ formula? I think I got it but I want to be sure before including my conclusion in the question itself. Being more specific: I guess there will be a $\sqrt{2} \langle p | \phi | 0 \rangle $ in the case of ${\cal L}_2$ but I can't see how it appears without doing field redefinitions.

comment Filming light in motion?
Good point, not a native English speaker, and automatic orthography correction didn't help me there :D It would be nice to have laser beans though...

comment Surface terms for field path integrals?
So the point here is that the "surface terms" vanish when I integrate with ${\cal L} \rightarrow (1+i \epsilon){\cal L}$, right?

You are right @user1504, I edited it to include the essential formulas
