My biggest recommendation would be to make the items count as magical, so they can't all be used at the same time; I know it's tedious adding all the items into the 2DA, but as it is, the game can become very unbalanced with some of the upgrades.
Disagree. You know an item's magical; if you don't want to unbalance the game, then either don't use it or (as I do) don't combine them in unbalancing ways. I say there's nothing wrong with leaving people the choice between Jaheira's "I hope this is not a sign of things to come; we must strive to maintain balance" and Timmy the Power Gamer's "Balance, schmalance".

If you're having fun playing the game, it's balanced. If not, there are lots of ways to swing the balance one way or the other - use them!

If you play through the game enough times, Balance does not happen because you can have 25 in each stat.

BMU upgrade fits with the feel of the BMU, only thing I see is possibly the further encouragement for people to cheat in the golden pantaloons (their own business I know, but still).

Kuldahar is the name of the tree and the city, ayup.

"This spear was forged by the druids who dwelt close to the great tree of Kuldahar.  It was meant to be used by the warrior who was appointed as Kuldahar's defender."

The Viconia handmaiden mace upgrade is nice.  Probably would be nicer to have it flavored towards Shar instead of Lolth.  For some odd reason... Shar gets the Cavern domain in 3e, which would give access to Imprisonment (too powerful most likly).  The darkness domain would give stuff like blindness/deafness, power word blind, and power word kill.

[ Add ]
And err, for balance, I don't think most people who replay the game use the character from their final save.  I could be wrong, but I typically use a different character each time.
