** Odo's day-to-day appearance was based on the Bajoran doctor who studied him. And as Odo himself pointed out to Kira, it's just a shape he assumes, not part of his identity the way it is with us solids. There'd be no reason for him to resume it for a completely different identity decades later. And the backstory that's canonically established for him has no room for this theory, ''and'' the backstory that's canonically established for the Founders has no room for it, too.

** The translator would need to be a function of the ship- in the Klingon courtroom, Kirk and [=McCoy=] need a listening device they have to hold up to their ears. No comm-badges with built-in translator in those days.

What, you expect him to be on the ball all the time?

* According to Spock, "There is an old Vulcan proverb: only Nixon could go to China." Perhaps what happened is, when speaking the proverb, Spock switched from English to Vulcan and the universal translator also translated the idioms. Instead of a Vulcan name and a Vulcan location, it pulled from the memory banks the best historical comparison that would be understood by someone who spoke English (namely, "Nixon" and "China").
