Your a good dude Tom! Patience is a virtue.

Yes time and sealing should even things out. I would suggest waiting at least 48 hours before burnishing so the sealer has time to crosslink. You don't need to seal unseen edges but may not be a bad idea so water cannot wick into the concrete.
Yes, if sealer sits in a container it will become matte with time over 10 minutes so you should mix in two batches or seal both pieces at the same time. Keep in mind the only coat that matters is the final coat for sheen level. So if you sealed all coats using matte and the final coat gloss you would end up with a gloss surface(and vise versa).
You should use the poly blues any time after sealing...

On the two larger pieces I have some spots where it appears duller than others but I'm hoping the sealer and the burnishing pads even that out. As far as application I have a couple questions. Do I need to do the edges that won't be seen? How soon do I burnishing after sealing? And if I wait ten minutes instead of 30 so I can get a high gloss will the pot become more matte as time passes? In other words if I'm doing 2 pieces together let's say will I have a different sheen as I start the second piece?
