Laird is probably disappointed that the Turtles people know of and like aren't his Mirage Turtles but the pizza eating surfing ones instead. That being said, TMNT made him rich, so I doubt he regrets it. He sold the property off at the right time and has been enjoying his retirement ever since.

When did David Warner mention this?

Do you have a source for this? His episodes were pretty great.

Paulsen left over a salary dispute. He felt that after nine years the voice cast should be paid better but CBS said "well you can be replaced" and that's what they did, they fired Paulsen.

But, considering he left mid season....I can't help but wonder if it was the same reason mr.paulsen had...and with fresh prince taking off, decided he didn't have to put up with it anymore.
Nope. Avery has gone on record as saying he loved voicing Shredder. The only reason he gave it up is because Fresh Prince was taking up too much of his time. It was more difficult for Avery to get into the voice studio. I think this might be the reason why the writers from Season 4 onwards made sure Krang and Shredder only appeared every other episode. I guess the demands during Season 7 from Fresh Prince became too much.

Pasko isn't credited on IMDB as script editor for any Season 2 episodes. Was he uncredited?

To an extent that is true. He wrote about half the series episodes although I think Michael Reeves got the conflict part of the show better than Wise did.
