First 2 seem pretty easy
For the music player it'd be nice to be able to browse the library on the TV screen whilst having the audio output via a usb dac into my hifi system.
Do I need some sort of dual boot system, what are the practicalities of setting this up?

Kodi can output Audio via HDMi or Audio Jack or USB Sound Card or GPIO Sound Card.
Though HDMi Audio is good quality so you could use an extractor like:
