Is there a root method you could implement to make it so the remap doesn't make the scrolling stutter?

For remapping you can just select one item at the same time. Why do you use checkboxes instead of radio buttons?

You can try to uninstall the app restart the phone and reinstall. Sometimes android keeps services even if app is disabled. Also make sure to disable all other Bixby apps in accessibility.

when i hit the bixby button for a split second the Hello Bixby screen appears. I have not set it up yet, is this something i need to do to avoid seeing that screen for that fraction of a second?

You could also try the alternative blocking method.
