The resistor is necessary, without it it won't run, it's there to prevent "HOT WIRING" the bike

If you look at the schematic, you'll see it's attached to the ignition switch itself

Cut wire, then solder and heat shrink

Easy enough

One the coil you have two male spades, one black, one green.

The wiring harness has a red, green, and black. The red wires attach to the black and the green goes to green, black goes to green as well.

You'll have to follow it from the ignition switch to the ignition module to verify you have the proper wire. Just take another look at the wiring diagram.
