Your questions probably could be solved if you did some research.

Q1 - Yes
Including If I flew MEL-LAX-BOS can I use admirals club before the domestic AA leg if I book on the QF website?
Booked on the QF website is irrelevant to the flight being operated and marketed by a OW carrier. You can access the admirals club at LAX, and the return leg in BOS.

And more importantly Qantas Gold (oneworld Sapphire) can use the AA Flagship lounges (in select main airports) rather than the Admirals Lounge

If you're OW Sapphire/QF Gold flying AA you'll have access to the Flagship Lounge at LAX instead of the Admirals Club, so you'll get to use a better lounge!

Person in question (not me) thinks all of you are wrong. I do thank you all for your time :D
If person in question is an American they would be correct as far as AAs program goes, where AA elites do not get lounge access on domestic AA itins unless they also pay for Admirals Club, but this doesn't apply to all other oneworld elites
Nope this person is from AUS!

Perhaps you should not disavow them so they don’t clog up the lounges elsewhere. I was gold and now platinum and never had an issue with a oneworld member on domestic flights (in the US and UK) regardless of links to international flights.
Welcome to the world of Gold :D
