7. No - it means the NEW Congress picks the President...with complications

in 2017, Congress will certify the results of the Electoral College votes. If no candidate has an absolutely majority, it falls to the House to vote BY STATE DELEGATIONS (not as individuals) for the President, and the Senate to vote AS INDIVIDAUALS for the VP.

That said, shifting to an Independent campaign AFTER the Convention would be virtually impossible; only chance would be to grab the nomination of a third Party that already has ballot access.
