It's likely that all of the standard awards they have released have been booked. Based on my observations, they do appear to block out dates and change availability. I suspect they hold out rooms...

I would say that it can't hurt to change it to adults, although I don't know if that will automatically get you out of the child fee. If you don't change it, you will almost certainly pay the child...

It isn't a 20% discount on each night, that's just how it sometimes shows up in the reservation system. If you're asking agents about a 20% discount they will not know what you're talking about.

So is booking through the Diamond desk the best way to avoid the child fee on a points reservation? Or was that only for reservations made before they updated their website with the modified terms?

If you check the wiki, you'll see that an April extension is commonly followed by a June extension. So it will probably be ~3 weeks before the next schedule extension.
