Couldn't have said it any better, great points. There's tons of you tube videos showing how to replace springs and easily tune an internal extractor. I personally prefer learning how to do these things my self rather than paying somebody.Just do the work yourself
Polishing the slide/frame isn't going to do anything for how the gun shoots unless its binding now. But you could use J-B bore paste to slick the frame/slide. But since they weren't hand fitted, it's not really going to make anything better
Just replace the springs if you think they need it.
Extractor tuning is super easy. You don't even need a tool and for the best results, should be done at the range. (E-series are external and can't be tuned easily at all)

I had a “smith” once who when I got it back had me shake my head.Get personal references before giving your toys to somebody.. My wife gave an expert her magazines for a tweak and none of them are reliable any more. No, not bringing them back. Egos do not let you admit you made a mistake.
